Makoto Aida “Ground No Plan”
This event has ended.
“Visions of the City - Obayashi Foundation Research Program” gives an opportunity for an artist or a group of artists from Japan or abroad endowed with an abundance of free-ranging ideas and a strong interest in cities, chosen on the recommendation of the five-member selection committee once every two years, to make suggestions or proposals for innovative or ideal cities, or a city that he/she would like to live in. As the first grant recipient, Makoto Aida, a Japanese artist who deals with everything from nymphets, the erotic and grotesque to war, violence, and politics in his work, and who has been, and continues to be, scathingly critical of contemporary Japanese society, was selected.
Aida plans to make use of various media, including drawings, conceptual drawings, scale models, paintings, installations, film and texts to depict the future “City-” and ”Land-” scape that he envisions.
from February 10, 2018 to February 24, 2018
Exhibition Hours: 10:30-18:30. Fridays closing at 19:30.
