After its economic collapse in the 1990s, Japan's Superflat movement, epitomized by the work of Takashi Murikami and Yoshimoto Nara, catapulted these and like-minded artists onto the art world stage. Today, an exciting new wave of work follows in their wake. These diverse works reflect an acute consciousness of cultural tradition, while proposing visions of a globalized future. They work in a wide range of medium: drawing, installation, photography, sculpture, textiles, video and site-specific projects

William Kurelek : the messenger by William Kurelek( Book )

5 editions published in 2011 in English and French and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Throughout a career that spanned from mid-1950s until his death, William Kurelek (1927-1977) and his art have meant many different things to many people. Widely-known as a painter of innocence and childhood memories whose scenes hearken back to a simpler and timeless past, Kurelek was also a chronicler of the experiences of various cultural groups in Canada, devoting entire series to Ukrainian, Jewish, Polish, Irish, French Canadian, and Inuit peoples. Then there is Kurelek the anguished prophet of a modern apocalypse, his art an indictment of the secular age and a testament to unwavering faith. Few modern artists are so readily accessible, compellingly complex, and so worthy of critical reappraisal. This stunning monograph accompanies the first large-scale survey of William Kurelek in thirty years."--Publisher's description
