TAB Talks #2 "Blah Art Blah Blah?"
This event has ended.
What are our expectations about artist talks? Flawless presentations of works? Passionate tirades? This week TAB Talks tackles a hot subject: "the purpose of artist talks".
We have asked Ryo Morimoto and Yoshiaki Kuribara, two young, honest yet unconventional artists best known for their live art-making TV series broadcast on a regional NHK channel for the past four years, to create a short, live performance of their perspective, as artists, on the "Artist Talk".
It will be followed by a one-hour discussion between the audience members and guests Hiromi Yoshii, owner of one of Tokyo's most established contemporary art galleries, joined by Darryl Jingwen Wee, an art writer and frequent contributor to TABlog.
The session will end with another short improvised performance by Morimoto and Kuribara that will include references to ideas raised during the earlier discussion.
Right after, we'll have a short segment called The 30-second Pitch. Five members of the audience will be invited to introduce themselves to the audience, promote a recent project, or announce a new product, website or company in under 30 seconds.
Then for another hour, we'll have drinks, chatting, and networking among guests and audience, complete with on-demand translators at your disposal.
TAB Talks are bilingual Japanese-English and start at 9pm, late enough for overworked designers like us. Drinks are available at the venue.
Limited seating of 90, come early.
The second edition of TAB Talks took place on March 11, and we invited artists, a gallery owner and an art writer to discuss "How should an artist explain his work?"
