Returning for a fourth time since its first installment in 2004, the “Roppongi Crossing” series of exhibitions aim to provide an extensive overview of the current contemporary Japanese art scene. For 2013, the state of modern Japanese art is explored through works influenced by current events and global perspectives.

“Out of Doubt,” refers to the productive debate and increased social awareness generated when established norms and accepted notions are questioned and challenged, and the exhibition focuses specifically on issues raised after the Great East Japan Earthquake. Twenty-nine artists are being featured, most of whom were born in 1970s and ’80s, though relevant works from artists from other generations are also included; Sept. 21-Jan. 13.
