Deitch Projects was pleased to present After the Reality, an exhibition featuring some of the most exciting new artists from Japan, curated by gallerist Hiromi Yoshii. The exhibition included five artists and the art collective Enlightenment, all of whom are involved in portraying what could be described as a post-reality world. Fantasy and reality, fears and emotions, are presented amidst an optimistic embrace of life and a foreboding of death.

The exhibition featured new work by Yoshitaka Azuma, Enlightenment, Koichi Enomoto, Taro Izumi, Soishiro Matsubara and Aya Ohki.

A 52-page catalog designed by Enlightenment has been published to accompany the exhibition. Towa Tei, the musician and DJ known for his chart-topping work with Deee-lite presented a special performance after the opening along with video projections by Enlightenment.
