at The Artcomplex Center of Tokyo (Shinjuku area)
(2017-09-06 - 2017-09-30)

Do you have a favorite artwork? If you do, you would use the phrase “o-ki ni iri” to express that in Japanese. We often use the word “favorite” in daily life to talk about things we like, but for some reason it’s much harder to use in the context of art. One explanation for this may be that we do not consider art to be part of our everyday lives. In this exhibition, ACT will display and sell works by selected artists. Why not discover your next “o-ki ni iri” piece here and make it part of your day-to-day. Venue: 2F Act2

47 People of Nippon 2017 Our Future Way of Living — Off-Grid Life
at Shibuya Hikarie 8/ d47 Museum (Shibuya area)
(2017-08-03 - 2017-10-09)

An imagining of the lifestyle collectives that will define our future, as seen from 47 diverse perspectives. This exhibition is about people leading diverse lifestyles unbound by conventional wisdom on things like housing, food, energy, work, and logistics. Some have years of experience; others are just getting started. Some are doing it on their own; others have founded companies. Knowing where you’re going is important, but so is having the continuity to make it all fit into the realities of our society. The exhibition is more than simply stories and dreams. It’s a vision of how people are finding different ways to enjoy their lives in a mature, capitalist, democratic society with a shrinking population. We hope you’ll enjoy connecting these 47 perspectives together to imagine where our society might be headed in the future, and what shape it might take. *Please go to the official website to refer to the related events.

Satoru Aoyama “News From Nowhere”

Satoru Aoyama “News From Nowhere”
at Mizuma Art Gallery - Ichigaya (Ichigaya, Kagurazaka area)
(2017-09-20 - 2017-10-21)

Satoru Aoyama’s copiously prolific artistic activity has continued apace this year, including his participation in the group show “Escape from the Sea” in Kuala Lumpur, the Yokohama Triennale, and his two-person exhibition with musician Ken Ikeda at Mizuma Gallery, Singapore. For this exhibition, Aoyama presents 30 new works in which he manipulates 19th-century vintage prints from Victorian Britain, applying to them elements of collage, drawing and sewing machine-rendered embroidery. Contemporary female figures whose work traverses the fields of fashion or pop culture seem to have passed through a time-warp, their chronological context changing to the 19th century as they appear within the prints. For Aoyama, who originally studied textile arts with a partial focus upon gender studies, this theme is one that has been developing within his practice over many years. The exhibition title, “News From Nowhere,” is taken from the title of a novel written in 1890 by the artist and poet William Morris. This book, within which the narrating “I” is transported in time from the 19th to the 22nd century, at a glance seems like a bizarre vision of the future as a pastoral utopia, yet it also enabled Morris to express his own critique, as an active Socialist, of modernization’s transformation of the world into a capitalist society. “I began to wonder if perhaps, the future we once imagined and depicted had slipped out of its orbit,”, Aoyama recently stated. “Lying ahead of some such slipped orbit in which reality - natural environments, society, politics, disputes and so forth - has been distorted, as written in Morris’ “News From Nowhere,” perhaps there exists something overlapping with a future in which the Middle Ages is praised as a utopia. But perhaps that itself actually reveals the paper-thin difference between utopia and dystopia. And then perhaps, precisely in our contemporary world which seems to be retreating backwards more than it is progressing toward the future, we are already within the vortex of a dystopia.” At the foundation of these alluring portraits of pop icons thus lies Aoyama’s critical percipience of both our world today and the future that lies ahead of it. On show at the same time as this exhibition in his presentation at the Yokohama Triennale 2017. There Aoyama presents artwork in the form of a personal history, featuring his own grandfather who was a painter. The work, also entitled “New From Nowhere” is even more deeply engaged with imaging political concerns.




Studio Brieditis & Evans “Handscape”

Studio Brieditis & Evans “Handscape”
at Atelier Muji (Ginza, Marunouchi area)
(2017-09-01 - 2017-10-29)

“Handscape” is a term coined from a combination of the words “hand” and “scape.” Referring to a landscape created by human hands, it does not concern something focusing on a specific part, but rather an overall view from a distance. Here two Swedish artists have been invited to work together with gallery visitors in a project where they will create a large rug using remnant materials left over from MUJI’s production processes. Combining design, ideas and the power of the human hand, “waste” material will be transformed into a beautiful piece of art. This project allows visitors to experience the pleasure of engaging with sustainability and explore new values with their very own hands. What is it that we choose as customers? What is it that makes us challenge ourselves to create something? There are many ways to enjoy this exhibition: join the project, watch the process and imagine the completed piece. The inspiration for this rug piece is “clouds,” and with the help of visitors, this art piece will change little by little each day. *Further details are available via the official website.

John Dove & Molly White “Sensibility and Wonder”

John Dove & Molly White “Sensibility and Wonder”
at Diesel Art Gallery (Shibuya area)
(2017-08-25 - 2017-11-09)

This exhibition features the origin of street fashion and the punk movement while reflecting on the works of John Dove and Molly White. The T-shirt has been a clothing staple in Street fashion for quite a while, and its history dates back to 1968 when John Dove and Molly White produced fully printed T-shirts under the label “Wonder Workshop” at their atelier in London. The pair used the same silkscreen techniques for making prints to forge their work of art; they applied their printing skills and uniquely developed inks for textiles to make prints on T-shirts for people to wear on the street with an affordable price instead of making small editions on paper or canvas. Their T-shirts allowed the images, which used to exist only on canvas or posters for a limited number of people reach a global audience. Through screen printings, collage and sculpture, the show traces modern art and fashion techniques born in the 60’s and 70’s. It also follows the origin of ideas that have become commonplace today, along with a sense of moment and a sense of wonder.

The Shining Boro – Cloth of Life

The Shining Boro – Cloth of Life
at Amuse Museum (Ueno, Yanaka area)
(2017-03-31 - 2018-03-25)

In Aomori Prefecture, there were quilted cloths called “Bodo” or “Bodoko” made by sewing pieces of hemp and cotton cloth once worn by generations of ancestors. Bodoko were used as sheets to lie on during the night, spread over straw or dry leaves on the floor. They were also often also used during childbirth as the sheet for the baby to be delivered on. Receiving the baby with these multi-layered cloths once worn by long-gone ancestors carried the message to the baby that she did not enter the world alone. In addition to the Boro patched clothing collection of Mr. Chuzaburo Tanaka, this exhibition presents valuable Bodoko owned by Mr. Toshio Kojima (Gallery Kojima) and Ms. Sayomi Okamune (Art gallery Hagisha). The stunning world of art unexpectedly created from these “shabby” clothes represents the precise opposite of today’s consumer culture.




"Boro" Exhibition

"Boro" Exhibition
at Amuse Museum (Ueno, Yanaka area)

"Boro" is now becoming an international phrase, originated from Japanese snowy north area, meaning the patched clothes that people back then used for many generations in a household by adding stitches and/or pieces of cloth on it over and over. The word “Boro” now also has an artistic sense to it, highly rated among the field of the textile art design, and requested for purchase by various artists and collectors. Boro is patched clothing with a lot of small cloths here and there, but nothing fancy like today’s quilted or patched works. It was made purely for the practical purposes of retaining warmth in the snowy areas and for making it last as long as possible where it was hard to obtain any other sorts of cloth. When we review its practicality and design from today’s point of view, we are able to realize its incredible sophistication. Amuse Museum is exhibiting Boro for the first time after a century has passed since its last use. It contains no waste, and this is what is called “Yuyo-no-Bi" (Beauty of Practicality), a concept which we seem to have forgotten already, the opposite of today’s prevailing consumer culture.
