Mori Art Museum 20th Anniversary Exhibition
WORLD CLASSROOM: Contemporary Art through School Subjects
2023.4.19 [Wed] – 9.24 [Sun]
Open every day
Since the 1990s, when the development of contemporary art began to be considered from multiple perspectives in different parts of the world, we have been seeing that contemporary art today goes far beyond the framework of arts and crafts and fine art in the school classroom. It is a composite field with connections to all subjects, including language and literature, mathematics, science, and social studies. In each of these disciplines, researchers are exploring the “unknowns” of the world, delving into history, and making new discoveries and inventions from the past to the future in order to enrich our perception of the world. The stance adopted by contemporary artists that seeks to go beyond our preconceptions in a creative way is also connected to this exploration of these unknowns. In this sense, the contemporary art museum is something akin to a “classroom of the world” where we can encounter and learn about these unknown worlds.
WORLD CLASSROOM: Contemporary Art through School Subjects, commemorating the 20th anniversary of the Mori Art Museum, is an attempt for us to encounter a world we have never seen or known from a wide variety of perspectives, using the subjects we learn at school as a gateway to contemporary art. Even though this exhibition is divided into such sections as “Language and Literature,” “Social Studies,” “Philosophy,” “Mathematics,” “Science,” “Music,” “Phys. Ed.,” and “Transdisciplinary,” each work, in fact, crosses over multiple subjects and domains. While over half of approximately 150 exhibited works will be drawn from the Mori Art Museum Collection for the first time ever, there will also be newly-commissioned artworks for this exhibition – altogether creating a “classroom of the world,” place of learning with works by 54 artists/artist groups.
Letters, Lights, Travels on the Street
(Bokura ga tabi ni deru riyuu)
Curated by Jeffrey Rosen
Aug 25th – Sep 11th, 2022
Thursday, August 25th, 6-8pm
New Art Dealers Alliance (NADA) and NowHere are pleased to present Letters, Lights, Travels on the Street (Bokura ga tabi ni deru riyuu), a group exhibition curated by NADA co-president Jeffrey Ian Rosen (Misako & Rosen, Tokyo) that highlights a dynamic cross-section of the Japanese contemporary art world. The exhibition’s title references the music of Kenji Ozawa, expressive of a generation’s youthful days, and the show features a variety of artists, both emerging and established.
NADA and NowHere are proud champions of the Japanese art community. NowHere, an art space devoted to the support of Japanese artists living in New York, hosts this survey of the country’s current artistic landscape. In the spirit of collaboration following NowHere’s inaugural booth at NADA New York, the exhibition highlights the support that the New York based non-profit organization NADA has provided for this community.
The show features multimedia works from artists Ken Kagami, Nanami Hori, Motoyuki Daifu, Yu Nishimura & Kazuyuki Takezaki, Emi Mizukami, Yuhei Kobayashi, Maki Katayama, Shigeru Hasegawa, Ken Sasaki, Takuya Ikezaki, Michi Suwa, Minoru Yoshida and COBRA. Many displayed will highlight the cross-cultural and intergenerational partnerships NADA has created over the years:
4649 and XYZ Collective, two independent, artist-run spaces that have gained a foothold in the international art world through their participation in NADA’s Miami art fair, exhibit new paintings by Emi Mizukami and Nanami Hori.
The collaborative paintings of Kazuyuki Takezaki and Yu Nishimura, represented by Misako & Rosen and Kayokoyuki, respectively, boasts a collaboration between artists and galleries which have developed friendships and partnerships within the context of NADA’s fairs.
The psychedelic, boundary-exploring film work of Minoru Yoshida (1935-2010), a Kyoto-born New York transplant and Gutai Art Association participant, will be presented by Ulterior Gallery, a New York-based gallery committed to the exhibition of works by an array of intergenerational artists from diverse cultures and backgrounds.
The exhibition’s opening reception will feature a talk by Ulterior Gallery owner Takako Tanabe. The closing reception will feature a performance by EUCADEMIX (Yuka C Honda), of the band Cibo Matto.
