Yokohama Museum of Art “BODY/PLAY/POLITICS” Exhibition

October 1st (Saturday) - December 14th (Wednesday), 2016

"BODY/PLAY/POLITICS" Exhibition at Yokohama Museum of Art

The ``BODY/PLAY/POLITICS'' exhibition attempts to use art to reconsider what is created by various differences in the ``body,'' such as skin color, ethnicity, and religious affiliation. Six artists from Europe, Africa, Southeast Asia, and Japan will express the theme of "body" from various perspectives.

The exhibiting artist is Yinka Shonibare MBE , who grew up in Lagos, Nigeria and creates paintings and sculptures that explore issues of race, social class, and colonialism. His work in Uncle Bunmi's Forest (2010) was featured in the Cannes Film Festival. Thailand's Apichatpong Weerasethakul , who has received attention as a film director and won the Palme d'Or at the festival, has released photographs that capture the scenery and people of Okinawa with a sense of tension, and in 2015 he won the Kimura Ihei Photography Award and the Japan Photographic Association Newcomer Award. Ryuichi Ishikawa , one of the most notable photographers today, has won two awards.

According to the Yokohama Museum of Art website, the exhibition "shows people confronting the history that emerges through their bodies and trying to find new meaning for the future." Nowadays, we need to respect diversity more than ever. By reconsidering the basic concept of ``BODY,'' it is likely to be an exhibit that will significantly change one's sense of values.

Koganecho Bazaar 2016 Asian Life

Golden Cho Bazaar 2016 Asian Life
Yoo Sungjun《Discovery of Life》2016

The Koganecho Bazaar, which started in 2008, is now in its 9th year. In the Koganemachi area of Yokohama, we are working with local residents, the government, the police, universities, and other organizations to create a city that uses art with the aim of creating a safe and secure city. The two pillars of this year's event are the ``Art Project,'' in which domestic and international artists create works of art based on the experiences they have gained in Koganecho, and the ``Machi Project,'' in which artists work together with residents to rediscover the charm of the town.

In addition, artists who work in Koganecho on a daily basis display their works in the town, part of their studios are open to the public, and there is a mechanism for art tours throughout the Koganecho area.

In addition to various exhibitions, there are also many events to liven up the town, such as "Nokisaki Art Fair & Koganecho Bread and Coffee Marche/Sunday, October 9th" and "Sanma Festival/Sunday, October 16th"!

If you walk around Hinode-cho from Kogane-cho, you will find an old-fashioned Western restaurant and a bonito flakes wholesaler founded in the 1950s, and if you walk past Hinode Studio along the Ooka River, you will find a view spot where you can see the Landmark Tower from the top of the bridge. too. Koganecho is not a flashy tourist destination, but it is a must-see spot as a town where new culture is born within Yokohama. On a sunny day, why not enjoy a stroll around the area while checking out the art?

Monday, December 19, 2016 - Saturday, January 21, 2017

Harumichi Saito <Awai> 2016
Yodo Saito <Awai> 2016

Since opening in 1975, Kanagawa Kenmin Hall Gallery has actively introduced works by contemporary artists. Starting in December, a special exhibition will be held in which five up-and-coming artists using different materials and techniques will explore the possibilities of unique expression, including porcelain, lacquer, photography, silkscreen, and installation.

"Rather than selecting works according to a theme created in the head, we chose five artists by looking at the works and following our intuition as to whether they would resonate with our hearts." (5Rooms 5 solo exhibitions that open your senses Press release Than).

In modern times, even art such as paintings and sculptures tends to be controlled by "thoughts," but this is an exhibition where we want you to feel what is expressed in them with your heart, without being bound by form.
