at Chrome Hearts Ginza (Ginza, Marunouchi area)
(2017-11-10 - 2017-11-24)

“The Adventures From Beaver Creek” is a series based on the small town of Bristol, located on the border between the states of Tennessee and Virginia, where Joe Foti spent his childhood during the 1960s and 1970s. He was inspired to create this work when he went back there six years ago, soon realizing that the scope of the project was so large that it would end up shown in a three-part exhibition. The first installment focused on the early history of the town dating back to the Civil War, while the second chapter addressed how the town Foti once knew is now slowly disappearing as the beautiful historic buildings are being demolished. This final installment expresses the artist’s irreplaceable memories of being on the cusp of leaving this small town for the exciting big city.

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

Manga artist Moto Hagio has worked on a wide range of genres since making her debut with “Ruru to Mimi (Ruru and Mimi)” in 1969, some of her best known masterpieces being “Poe no Ichizoku (Poe’s Clan)” and “The Heart of Thomas.” She was a member of the Year 24 Group along with other female manga authors such as Yumiko Oshima, who was also gaining in popularity at the time, and together they built the golden age of girls’ “shojo” manga during the 1970s. It was against this backdrop that she released “They were Eleven” in 1975, which was a fully-fledged work of science fiction unprecedented in the shojo manga category, and which caused a wave of shock in the industry. Since then, she has produced further titles such as “Hyaku Oku no Hiru to Sen oku no Yoru (Ten billion noons and one hundred billion nights” (based on the story by Ryu Mitsuse), “Star red,” and “Marginal,” continuing to attract many fans. This exhibition is based on the event held at Kichijoji Art Museum in Musashino City in April 2016, presenting original color illustrations produced by Hagio at the dawn of the science fiction genre in shojo manga. There will be roughly 400 works on exhibit, with around 120 added since the previous show.

(image)
Orbis 30th Anniversary Exhibition: The Beauty of Everyday Life
at Pola Museum Annex (Ginza, Marunouchi area)
(2017-11-17 - 2017-12-24)

Haré and Ke form a duality within traditional Japanese culture: Haré is the remarkable and Ke is the usual. Moments of Haré are transformative and celebratory, when occasions rise, whereas Ke are the routines of ordinary life, best when uneventful. In contemporary society it can seem that glamorous Haré gets all of the attention, even though we know that rare and special Haré is only possible upon the repletion of humble Ke. In this exhibition we turn our attention to Ke, and illuminate the aesthetic propositions by creators for beauty that resonates deep within everyday life. [Artists] Yukiko Ishimura, Shinichiro Ogata, Ito Ogawa, Kengo Kuma, Kundo Koyama, Izumi Shiokawa, Fumie Shibata, Sooku Sen, Yoshiharu Doi, Ikuko Harada, Tomi Matsuba, Akira Minagawa, Karoku Yanagiya, Kaoru Yokoo

10th Anniversary Exhibition “Keith Haring and Japan: Pop to Neo-Japonism”
at Nakamura Keith-Haring Collection (Greater Tokyo area)
(2017-02-05 - 2018-01-08)

The Nakamura Keith Haring Collection, the only museum in the world dedicated to the collection of Keith Haring’s artwork, celebrates its 10th anniversary in 2017. This exhibition focuses on the footprints Haring left in Japan, exploring his liberating and diverse point of view in works expressing Japanese aesthetics. It also features an important mural made with 500 children at Parthenon Tama, Tokyo in 1987. This work is the culmination of an art that communicates beyond language. On his first visit to Japan, Haring made drawings on mediums unique to Japan, such as folding screens, scrolls, kites and fans with Sumi ink. Haring had not only been influenced by his early introduction to Zen but also inspired by Eastern philosophy, including both cultural and literary elements. He experienced the height of Tokyo’s economic boom of the 80’s, and the dichotomy of ultra-modern and the traditional was both a source of fascination and inspiration for him. After the success of his revolutionary art project Pop Shop, which inherited the concept of his break out graffiti project Subway Drawings, Haring opened Pop Shop Tokyo in Aoyama, Tokyo in 1988. The shop was a sensation and many people waited in line just to get a glimpse of Haring’s pop-style.

Combining photographs and illustrations, the expression has greatly changed over the decades. The world of Kinder book will be revealed here.

(image)
The 100-Year History of Japanese Picture Books
at Chihiro Art Museum Tokyo (Musashino, Tama area)
(2017-11-08 - 2018-01-31)

In the 1910s, several Japanese magazines for children, such as “Kodomo no Tomo (The Children’s Companion)” and “Akai Tori (Red Bird),” were launched one after the other. Against the backdrop of the prosperity that arrived to Japan after World War I - a period known as the Taisho Democracy - highly artistic illustrated magazines and picture books emerged from the movement at the time promoting fairy tales, nursery songs and pictures for children. Following World War II, picture books enjoyed a resurgence thanks to the contributions of Chihiro Iwasaki and other distinctive artists. This exhibition follows the progression of the uniquely rich expressiveness of Japanese picture books over the past 100 years.

The base of our culture and life lies in the “untamed mind.” This mind affects both human instinct and intellect, and it is the trigger and stimulant for creativity. What does the “untamed mind” mean in context of the present day? How can people rediscover it within themselves? How can they understand and express its previously-undetected qualities? This exhibition focuses on the fascinating power of the instinctive, untamed mind of contemporary creators, unveiling how to detect the “untamed mind” through their works and archives. Venue: Gallery 1, Gallery 2

Delicious! Animating Memorable Meals
at Ghibli Museum, Mitaka (Musashino, Tama area)
(2017-05-28 - 2018-05-01)

Studio Ghibli films are renowned for depicting daily life in great detail. What often lingers in the memory of viewers are scenes of food and meals: Pazu and Sheeta sharing a fried egg on toast in “Castle in the Sky,” Chihiro shedding tears of relief while eating a rice ball received from Haku in “Spirited Away,” Howl frying up bacon and eggs for Sophie, Markl and everyone in “Howl’s Moving Castle,” the list goes on… The foods that appear are not particularly special, often being rather common, but their appearance in the films always has special meaning. Pazu and Sheeta’s hearts connect when they share the same food. The courage to face her challenges blooms in Chihiro as she eats the rice ball. Around the dining table a family forms while everyone enjoys bacon and eggs in “Howl’s Moving Castle.” Scenes of casual meals are infused with tremendous storytelling importance, and achieving dramatic effect while creating delicious-looking meals and characters enjoying them - show in their expressions and gestures - comes from the power of finely detailed drawing. Food that is still warm, that looks soft and tender, with the wonderful flavor showing on the faces of those eating them - these scenes of meals are appealing and charming. No dialogue is needed to convey deliciousness and happiness. This exhibition introduces how food can be drawn to appear even more delectable than the real thing, creating scenes of joy.

Their beautiful handcrafted publications typically feature multicolored silkscreen prints on thick handmade paper and have attracted much attention around the globe.

(image)
Joan Cornella Japan Solo Exhibition 2017
at T-Art Hall (Tokyo: Others area)
(2017-12-01 - 2017-12-10)

Joan Cornella is a Spanish cartoonist and illustrator famous for his unsettling, surreal style and darkly humorous comic strips, as well as artwork he produced for American band Wilco’s album “Schmilco,” which was released in September 2016 and became a hot topic around the world. Simple yet eccentric visuals are central to Cornella’s approach. At times his works are considered disturbing or flat-out offensive, but through them he explores our unnatural connection to social media, as well as political topics such as abortion, addiction and gender issues - no subject being off limits. There is a potent message embodied in Cornella’s art, his incredibly entertaining works encouraging the viewer to think about sincere topics.
