Play IMT (7) - In Between Worlds
at Intermediatheque
Media: Performance Art
(2017-11-24 - 2017-12-03)

This seventh installment of the Play IMT series reconsiders the series’ basic concept of experimenting with theater and museums, developing a theatrical performance throughout the Intermediatheque, with “the in-between” (that is, what appears between the theatrical and museum worlds) as its key theme. By actively integrating the Intermediatheque collection and activities as well as people who gather there within the process of theatrical creation, the museum consistently explores what kind of theatrical expression can be crystallized within a museum space. In this performance, the theatrical experimentation within a museum context will gather the Intermediatheque’s space and exhibits, as well as original music and storylines, installations, props, costumes and actors. Therefore, actors are both neutral beings - among the aforementioned theatrical elements - and special entities - mediating and connecting all these elements. Members of the audience are also essential elements of the performance, in that they contribute to give form to various new images emanating throughout the play. As the performance grows organically, members of the audience get gradually involved, thus nourishing the play. This event aims to be participatory, with all the people present contributing to create a new world. Performers: Hiroshi Fujimori, Norihisa Honke, Kim Hyeryong, Inori Imamura, Mai Sasaki, Chikako Shibasaki, Yoshiki Shibata, Mirano Suzuki, Mana Takenouchi, Shinji Tozawa, Chie Yoshida Dates: Nov. 24 (Fri) 18:30-; Nov. 25 (Sat) 14:00-, 17:00-; Nov. 26 (Sun) 14:00-, Dec. 1 (Fri) 18:30-: Dec. 2 (Sat) 14:00-, 17:00-; Dec. 3 (Sun) 14:00-.

Workshop “Polishing the Spectacle of Myself: A Brief Introduction to the Work of ESTAR(SER)”
at A.I.T. Room
Media: Workshops - Talks
(2017-11-24)

On 24 November 2017, at AIT, visiting associates of ESTAR(SER) will offer a brief introduction to its past and present work, and present ongoing research into the history of the Order of the Third Bird (including a discussion of recent reinterpretations of the mysterious objects known as the MacGinitie Goggles). A number of ESTAR(SER) publications will be on hand, and several “protocols” for sustained attention inspired by those in use by the “Birds” will be made available. Experimentation will be encouraged. New research, recently come to light, suggests that the eleven pairs of “Ganzfeld effect” goggles found in the so-called MacGinitie Collection of the W-Cache may have been used by associates of the Order of the Third Bird across the twentieth century as part of a heretofore unknown symbolic ritual of self-preparation. Did these individuals, with their focus on the proper way to look at works of art, collectively soil (and then cleanse?) various eyeglasses and protective eyewear in an intimate performance of their ambition to “see anew”? The evidence remains difficult to interpret. Links to Aldous Huxley’s Art of Seeing are suspected. [Outline] Date and Time: Nov. 24 (Fri) 19:00-21:00 (18:30 Door open) Venue: Daikanyama AIT Room Capacity: 20 Admission: ¥1000 (¥800 for Students and AIT Base Members / Free for AIT House and Support Members) *All admissions with 1 drink / Booking required / English only *Please see the official website for booking and further details.

(2017-11-25 - 2018-01-08)

Tara Books is an independent publishing house based in Chennai, South India that creates handmade picture books akin to crafted objects. Since its establishment in 1994, it has published a number of titles, focusing mainly on picture books, with an emphasis on paintings, text, graphic design, and book building. Their beautiful handcrafted publications typically feature multicolored silkscreen prints on thick handmade paper and have attracted much attention around the globe. Though printing techniques and the methods by which books are constructed tend to be hidden from view, the essence of Tara Books is in its editorial policy; when working with folk artists they visit various places in India, meeting with the painters and working alongside them. They also work together with overseas artists and designers in countries such as Japan, seeing this as a way to challenge established approaches, and address social problems and the situation of commercial art in India, for example. By introducing titles such as “The Night Life of Trees” and “Waterlife,” which are well-known in Japan, this exhibition shines the spotlight on Tara Books’ method of book construction and their handmade book building process with folk artists. Enjoy the array of picture books, original artwork, photographs, videos, and other 300 or so objects on show that invite you to learn about their publishing activities.

Minoru Onoda Exhibition

Minoru Onoda Exhibition
at Taka Ishii Gallery Tokyo
Media: Painting
(2017-11-25 - 2017-12-22)

Minoru Onoda’s first solo exhibition with the gallery features eleven paintings, spanning his early works of the 1960s to the late works of the late 1990s and offering an overview of his creative practice that lasted over five decades. In the 1960s, Gutai’s art informel style, established with Michel Tapié’s support, had gradually grown stale. To rectify this situation in 1965, Jiro Yoshihara welcomed new members, whose works clearly differed from those of previous members. Onoda was one of the “third generation” members who joined Gutai that year. The new members’ works aimed for a new type of abstraction that would accurately reflect the age of mass production and consumption. Onoda’s paintings of the 1960s are composed of numerous variously colored and sized dots. Painted on a plywood support with a base mixed of gofun and glue, these works have an organic, undulating surface. Onoda covered the surfaces of these works, which he called “paintings of proliferation,” with dots to objectify this period of rapid economic growth, when industrial parts such as vacuum tubes were mass produced. His paintings became increasingly abstract, and in his works of 1970s, the dots are concentrated inside a circle placed centrally in a square canvas. By limiting the form to the universal shape of a circle, Onoda prevented any interference by chance and imagination, as if to eradicate conceptual factors from his pictures.

(2017-11-28 - 2017-12-23)

Starting November 28, Creation Gallery G8 and Guardian Garden - two galleries in Tokyo’s Ginza district - will host an exhibition focusing on tube Socks for this year’s addition of the annual “Creation Project.” It represents a collaboration involving 167 creative artists and a small manufacturing company based in Osaka. Higuchi Knitting Company, located in Hirakata City in Osaka Prefecture, is a producer of socks that was founded in 1933. Sock production in Japan peaked in the late 1980s and has been in decline ever since. In the face of inexpensive imports from Asia, the Japanese sock industry as a whole is in a severe state. Higuchi Knitting takes maximum advantage of its resilience as a small-scale producer, however, creating made-to-order socks on request from the customer - even responding to orders for a single pair. The items on exhibit here are based on tube socks developed by Higuchi Knitting at the request of its customers. The company’s tube socks are unusual in having no heel and being of extra-high quality. Those featured in the exhibition are all original articles with knitted designs created by artists from various fields and backgrounds. All items on show will be available for purchase. The absence of a heel, combined with outstanding elasticity, means that Higuchi Knitting’s tube socks fit all sizes, from children to adults. They make ideal gifts, for Christmas or other occasions, and for oneself. Proceeds from the sale of the tube socks will be donated to “Save the Children.” Under that program, funds are used locally in Japan for a number of important purposes: to relieve child poverty, prevent child abuse, support recovery in disaster-affected regions, etc.
