Time Out says

Stars brings together six celebrated figures from the Japanese modern art scene, each of whom rose to prominence as the country became Asia’s first postwar economic powerhouse, and transcended Japan’s cultural borders to capture imaginations worldwide.

The careers of Yayoi Kusama, Tatsuo Miyajima, Takashi Murakami, Yoshitomo Nara, Hiroshi Sugimoto and South Korean-born Lee Ufan, a resident of Japan for over six decades, are traced from their earliest works through to new pieces specially commissioned for this show. Stars explores how each of the six have, in very different ways, pursued universal values that transcend nationality and culture while working in a social, cultural and economic milieu that has often been considered unique.
