"On the Agenda of the Arts" is a project that examines current and future role of art through dialogue in diverse cultures. "Education program," the related event of the exhibition we are having now at TWS Shibuya will start this weekend. We are announcing the detail information of the event starting by Young-Hae Chang heavy industries.
【vol.1: Young-Hae Chang Heavy Industries】
"WHY DO YOUNG-HAE AND MARC LOVE JAPANESE LIFE SO MUCH, AND CAN THEY BE CURED? "
During their stay at TWS for a month, they will be having a lecture event, workshops, and making art works. Through these related "research", YHCHI will try to find some negative side of Japan despite so much love they have for Japan, and then they will make some artwork out of the result.
As for the talk event on Nov/18 and the workshop on Nov/20, we will not record any information; no taking pictures or recording sounds. It is a challenge by the artist who believes it is more important to "record" through people themselves who are at a certain place and share a certain moment, as a media, not as "recording" as ready-made media. Please do not miss this opportunity!
Nov/18(Fri) Lecture Talk
(admission free, no reservation necessary, Japanese-English Translation available)
(reservation necessary, detail info here)
On this workshop YHCHI will be asking participants a simple question; "What is Art?" We will make this time as to think about "art" and "artist" It will be a session which you never can experience in school. Through exchanging opinions and dialogues between artists and participants about various topics, we would like to create an opportunity to give participants a time to think about seemingly simple at first yet such incisive question, "what is art?"
Nov/29, 30, Dec/1, 2, 6, 7, 8: Mentoring
*We are still accepting participants for the workshop and the mentoring as there are some seats still available.
