In response to growing global interest in Japanese pop culture, the Japan Foundation commissioned art critic Midori Matsui to curate an exhibition. The spotlight fell upon the world of “Micropop” as embodied by the generation of young Japanese artists who came onto the scene during the latter half of the 1990s and fi rst half of the 2000s. Matsui coined the term “Micropop” to describe the unique worldview of artists who rearrange fragments of information and knowledge to suggest fresh ways of perceiving the outmoded and banal. The collection of 35 drawings, painting and video works has been shown internationally in Europe, North America, the Middle East and Asia Pacific.
