Atomic Sunshine

Despite the uniqueness of the Article 9 of the Japanese Constitution, its very existence is surprisingly not well-known in other countries. Through this exhibition, not only will the post-war Japanese art be introduced, but the Article 9 will also be introduced to the audience in New York. The exhibition will investigate the historic significance and importance of how Article 9 was developed and how because of this, there was no blood shed from direct confrontation for 60 years after the war.
