"Japan:Rising seeks to expand our understanding of current art in Japan beyond the 'new pop' branding. There are other voices, many of them much quieter and inward-seeking, emanating from Japan at this moment. This is not to say that pop elements are absent. That would be impossible, so pervasive is this influence on young Japanese artists. The fourteen artists in Japan:Rising proclaim their independence from any fixed labels on their artistic practice... these artists celebrate the diverse and complex variety of artistic activity in contemporary Japan." - Extract taken from book jacket back cover. Japan:Rising features essays by Dominique Nahas, Michael Rush and Yasufumi Nakamori. Also includes interviews, conducted by Midori Matsui (art critic and historian), with several of the artists.
