Abstract

The presentation examines artwork made during the Japanese Heisei era from a feminist lens. Women artists highlight the reality of the lives of women, including the unique power that they hold in the home and in popular culture. While some scholarship on contemporary Japan only accounts for the negative events in the Heisei Era, through my research, I draw attention to female artists who experienced great success through their questioning of gender norms.
