Refashioning: CFGNY and Wataru Tominaga

November 18, 2022-February 19, 2023
Japan Society presents the exhibition Refashioning: CFGNY and Wataru Tominaga from November 18, 2022 through February 19, 2023. The first show devoted to the art of contemporary fashion at Japan Society, the exhibition explores the work of CFGNY and Wataru Tominaga, two emerging fashion labels that engage with the intersections between fashion, art, and identity. Featuring garments, accessories, and textile-related works, the exhibition examines the ways in which these two practices—one based in New York, and the other in Tokyo—experiment with artistic mediums beyond conventional forms of dress, while challenging preconceived notions of gender and identity.

Refashion Your Wardrobe with Sky Cubacub
In-person event, February 12 at 2pm

In conjunction with the current exhibition, Refashioning: CFGNY and Wataru Tominaga, Sky Cubacub, founder of Rebirth Garments, will lead an interactive workshop on re-envisioning your wardrobe to make it fully celebrate the intersections of all of your identities. Joining live from their studio in Chicago, Sky will facilitate demonstrations on no-sew, zero-waste methods of draping garments and repurposing fabrics that embrace individuality.

Kyohei Inukai

March 17–June 25, 2023

Kyohei Inukai is the first institutional solo exhibition of Kyohei Inukai (1913–1985), a largely unknown, yet prolific Japanese-American artist. Presenting key bodies of work—many of which have never been shown before—this exhibition highlights Inukai’s paintings and screenprints of illusionary, abstract lines and shapes that defined his artistic style during the latter years of his career, from the 1960s through the 80s. These works are juxtaposed with a series of sumi-e, or Japanese ink paintings, that dovetail Inukai’s distinctive curvilinear forms and nuanced color palettes with traditional Japanese art. This rare presentation of an underrecognized artist’s legacy builds upon Japan Society’s ongoing mission to embrace and showcase diverse narratives of art and artists of Japan and the Japanese diaspora.
