Japanese creatives have flocked to India during the postmodern era, traveling and living there and drawing on its aesthetic in their work. In this exhibition, we look at work by artists, graphic designers and photographers whose work makes a visual nod to India, displaying their work alongside Indian mementos brought home. Also on display are folk paintings,textiles,toys and printed materials acquired by Japanese researchers and embassy officials who visited in India from the 1960s to the 1980s. The exhibition serves as a rich journey into the way the Indian aesthetic has influenced visual expression in Japan.
