We can make another future: Japanese art after 1989


176 pages hardcover colour and black-and-white illustrations

We can make another future: Japanese art after 1989 profiles QAGOMA’s holdings of contemporary art from Japan in a richly illustrated and beautifully designed hardcover publication.

Chronicling the art of the Heisei era, which commenced in 1989 with the ascension of Emperor Akihito, the book features major works by artists including Yayoi Kusama, Lee Ufan, Takashi Murakami, Yasumasa Morimura, Daido Moriyama, Yoshitomo Nara, Hiroshi Sugimoto and Yukinori Yanagi. The era coincides with the peak of the Japanese economic boom and its later contraction, which led to the ‘lost decades’ of the 1990s and 2000s, but also the rise of Japan as a cultural superpower. QAGOMA’s collection of contemporary Japanese art is the most extensive in Australia and is uniquely positioned to shed light on this fascinating period, exploring various aspects of culture and society in Japan through the work of its leading artists. Accompanying the exhibition of the same name, We can make another future includes essays by QAGOMA curator Reuben Keehan and Japanese curator Shihoko Iida, as well as a detailed chronology spanning 25 years of Japanese art in the context of wider culture and society.
