The Japan Foundation presents

Beyond the Lines:
Oscar OIWA

The spread of Covid-19 had a heavy impact on society worldwide, and contact between individuals has been greatly curtailed to contain the pandemic. Art museums around Japan have been affected by the situation, with institutions being forced to close their doors, and many exhibitions having to be canceled or postponed. Despite these circumstances, artists are still actively producing and exhibiting. The Japan Foundation (JF) is organizing an online exhibition by six such artists to present their new works, along with interviews, to give viewers at home the opportunity to discover and enjoy their art.
