The exhibition Changing Soil: Contemporary Landscape Painting (Za Fukei) at Nagoya/Boston Museum of Fine Arts offers the opportunity to see landscape paintings by various artists working in their own unique styles.

Artists include:
The exhibition tries to examine the ways in which artists try to render their natural surroundings. Through the paintings, we find artists who explore their own perspective and artistic form while they cast their eyes on the important and universal theme of "landscape painting." Contemporary landscape is interpreted in the painting through the artist's particular viewpoint, inspiring us to consider how we have interacted with nature and our surroundings, and how we will continue to do so.
The exhibition continues until Sunday 12th September 2010

The Nagoya/Boston Museum of Fine Arts is the sister museum of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (MFA) and is located in Japan.  Its aim is to present art in innovative and refreshing ways.
