Popular Protest in Post War Japan: The Antiwar Art of Shikoku Gorō


Each of the sections of “Popular Protest in Postwar Japan” explores a significant book created by Shikoku Gorō (1924-2014) in collaboration with networks of artists and citizens around Hiroshima. The exhibit situates this grassroots art--books and related paintings, poems, posters, sketches, plays, and photographs--in the context of local and transnational social movements from 1945 to 2020.
