"Artist File 2010: The NACT Annual Show of Contemporary Art" Exhibition

The National Art Center, Tokyo

poster for "Artist File 2010: The NACT Annual Show of Contemporary Art" Exhibition

This event has ended.

The Artist File exhibition introduces a group of currently active artists whose work is among the most noteworthy, both in Japan and abroad. This year's event, the third in the series, features seven artists (six Japanese, one foreign).

The exhibitions in the Artist File series have no specific theme. This year's event presents artists with a wide range of ages, from those in their 30s to those in their 50s, and a variety of expressions, including painting, video, and sculpture, which deal with many different themes. This diversity and complexity helps realize what might be seen as the main objective of the series: to reflect the "reality" of the era.

Thus, as the title suggests, one might liken Artist File to a large cabinet in which each artist's unique perception of "reality" is filed. As viewers take each file in hand, they will make their way through a solo exhibition by each artist and revel in the unique form of "reality" they find there.

TOKYO ART PATROL online 3/16

特に印象的だったのは、名刺や葉書の文字の部分をカラフルな糸で縫った作品。文字としては読めなくなってしまっているのですが、文字がもぞもぞと動き出しそうなものに見えてきます。他にも本を使った作品など、古本などが好きな人にはもってこいの展示です。

各作家による個展が連続するように構成されているので、作品とじっくり向き合えるのと同時にそれぞれの個性をコンパクトに体験できる。現代美術に詳しい人はもちろん、お気に入りの作家を見つけるだけでも単純に楽しめる展覧会だ。

アーティスト・ファイル2010と佐々木ミナミ展

会場で作品に向き合うと「FIFAワールドカップでファンタジスタのプレイを観るかのような興奮」を覚えつつ、同時に「自分の力では決して手に届くことがない世界のありよう」が作品としてその場にあることも実感させられる。
