Japanese graphic designers Ikko Tanaka, Shigeo Fukuda, and Kazumasa Nagai created eye-catching posters for trade fairs, cultural festivals, and exhibitions in the 1980s and early 1990s, when Japan’s strong economy was causing anti-Japanese sentiment overseas. Their posters became powerful tools to promote a deeper understanding of Japan and its long cultural history. Join Curator of Asian Art, Natsu Oyobe, and explore concepts and visual strategies behind these poster designs, which helped to remake the national image.

Lead support for Red Circle is provided by the E. Rhodes and Leona B. Carpenter Foundation and the University of Michigan Center for Japanese Studies.
