Tokyo Wonder Site Hongo is pleased to announce an exhibition titled "INDEX #4 - YES WE CAN DESTROY -". Part of an affiliate program with universities, this string of exhibitions was designed as a stage for practical experience for art management students, and a platform for exchange among a young generation of artists. This event marks the third exhibition co-hosted by Tokyo Wonder Site, reflecting the meaning and significance we are seeing in occasions for students from the Kansai region to exhibit their works in Tokyo.
The first event in this series took place at ARTZONE, an art space run by the Kyoto University of Art and Design, in 2005. For the second (2006) and following installments, Tokyo Wonder Site hosted as an additional venue next to ARTZONE, in a step toward the project's expansion to an inter-regional scale.
This year's fourth edition highlights the role of INDEX as an increasingly important gateway to success for artists and art students. In addition to discovering fresh new talent, this year the event is going to make a further leap forward and will hopefully transform into an exhibition that appeals to society with the unique qualities of artworks reflecting their creators' sensitive response to the signs of their time. Most of the ten artists participating in this exhibition were born in the 1980s, and work in a broad range of disciplines including painting, sculpture, video, etc. Look forward to seeing what kinds of works these newcomer artists from various regions across Japan chose to present to the Tokyo audience.
