For the past 47 years, Japan’s Agency for Cultural Affairs has run overseas study programs for young artists, providing opportunities for them to experience new environments and gain different perspectives.

Having given more than 3,000 artists such opportunities, the program’s annual Domani exhibition highlights the fruits of their research and includes paintings, sculpture, photo graphy, installations, animation, crafts and architecture. This 17th Domani show presents works under the title of “Density and Purity of Japan Contemporary Art,” and introduces 12 up-and-coming artists who tackle the importance of conservation and restoration; Dec. 13-Jan. 25.
