Japan-U.S. ‘Alliances’ forged through art in Palmer Museum exhibit

After World War II came to an end, Japan and the U.S. needed a way to reshape their images and re-establish connections. This link was reconciled, in part, through art, as Japanese artists were encouraged to develop modern approaches to long-established forms of Japanese traditions. Likewise in the West, art audiences were encouraged to value new Japanese artistic expressions as part of a global culture of modernism associated with creative individuality.
