"The '70s in Japan: 1968-1982"

THE MUSEUM OF MODERN ART, SAITAMA


By TOMOHIRO OSAKI
Staff writer

The 1970s was not only a time of political activism and rebellion against the establishment, but one that saw Japan looking to the future with the introduction of new technology at the Osaka Expo. By the late '70s, there was also a renewed interest among magazine publishers to focus on youth culture.

TV commercials and paintings were quick to follow, with recognizably flashy and glamorous portrayals of youth. Focusing on the social revolution, this exhibition covers 15 years, from 1968 to 1982, with examples of art, architecture, photography, manga comic books and more; till Nov 11.

The Museum of Modern Art, Saitama; (048) 824-0111; 9-30-1, Tokiwa, Urawa-ku, Saitama; Kita-Urawa Station, JR Keihin Tohoku Line. 10 a.m.-5:30 p.m. ¥ 1,000. Closed Mon (except Oct 8). momas.jp.
