at Tokyo Gallery + BTAP (Ginza, Marunouchi area)
(2016-05-21 - 2016-06-18)

During the 1960’s, Yoshimura, Shinohara, and Kojima started showing their work, with a focus on “happenings”, centering around the Yomiuri Independent Exhibitions. An avant-garde group called the Neo Dadaism Organizers were founded as a direct result of this exhibition. They performed on the streets, created objects from salvaged materials, and shocked the art world of the time. Shinohara and Yoshimura were founding members of that group. Growing up during the second World War and America’s occupation of Japan, these artists absorbed American pop culture and post-war art as their own, but they created work sourcing native Japanese pop culture as material.

Roppongi Crossing 2016: My Body, Your Voice
at Mori Art Museum (Roppongi, Nogizaka area)
(2016-03-26 - 2016-07-10)

Staged by the Mori Art Museum triennially since 2004, “Roppongi Crossing” is a series designed to offer a comprehensive survey of the Japanese contemporary art scene. For the 5th edition, through the different methods of art production of the 20 artist groups selected by the curators from Japan, South Korea and Taiwan working together, the exhibition will examine a wide spectrum of Japanese contemporary art and contemplate the society and art of today. With globalization, the continuing development of IT and the proliferation of SNS platforms, people now more than ever have the ability to communicate with the world as an individual. As well, with increased opportunity for virtual communication via the Internet, there is an inevitable change in self identities and in relationship between the self and others. Thus a review of the variety of existing frameworks in the society as well as the sets of values that until now have been taken for granted is needed. This exhibition features artists that shine a spotlight on individual events and stories based on their own research - through which alternative histories, images on physical body and gender, as well as alternative landscapes emerge. Who am “I”? How is my body connected to history and to other people? The sense of past and future, of oneself and other people - through art we will explore new relationships between the world and oneself.

“Hello Work “
at Open Muji Tokyo (Ginza, Marunouchi area)
(2016-06-03 - 2016-07-10)

Whilst the rapid economic development of Japan has come to an end, it appears our working environment and our awareness towards our occupations has not followed this change. Whilst we must work for our own development and independence, it is not just for money but also for constructing a society and future which we can continue to live in. “Working” and “Living”, how closely are these intertwined? Whilst there are numerous jobs in the world, but this exhibition presents the work of making things, which adults and children alike can enjoy together. [Related Event] Talks and hands on workshops etc are planned throughout the exhibition period
