Artist File 2015 Next Doors: Contemporary Art in Japan and Korea
This event has ended.
Artist File, organized by the National Art Center, Tokyo (NACT) since 2008, is a group exhibition consisting of a collection of solo shows by contemporary artists who are producing some of the freshest and most substantial work today. This year, to commemorate the 50th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Japan and Korea, it presents “Artist File 2015 Next Doors: Contemporary Art in Japan and Korea” in cooperation with the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Korea (MMCA), one of Asia’s foremost museums. This exhibition, featuring Japanese and Korean artists, is scheduled to begin at NACT before traveling to MMCA, Gwacheon. The subtitle of the exhibition, “Next Doors: Contemporary Art in Japan and Korea,” is intended to suggest the continuing use of the solo show format, one of Artist File’s trademarks, as well as the geographical proximity between Japan and Korea, and the loose-knit way in which the aesthetics and styles of the two countries’ artists are linked.
Artists: IM Heungsoon, Ki Seulki, Kohei Kobayashi, Simon Minamikawa, Lee Sungmi, Lee Hyein, Lee Wonho, Aya Momose, Aiko Tezuka, Motohiro Tomii, Yang Junguk, Shizuka Yokomizo,
