About Private Utopia
Private Utopia: Contemporary Art from the British Council Collection is a major new exhibition which has been created in partnership with the Asahi Shimbun; Tokyo Station Gallery; Itami City Museum of Art; Kochi Museum of Art and Okayama Museum of Art. Together, the curators of each museum have selected works from the holdings of the British Council Collection.
Private Utopia spans the last two decades and showcases the range of work produced by British artists during this time. What is particularly striking about the selection is the array of themes, ideas and materials. Crossovers into music, literature, social history and anthropology are common threads running through the exhibition, reflecting the multifarious nature of contemporary art in the UK today and the broadening definition of what art can be.
