London/Tokyo Y-AIR Exchange Programme 5th Anniversary Exhibition｜Ai mi Tagai
This event has ended.
Organized to mark the fifth year of the London/Tokyo Y-AIR Exchange Programme (LTYE) since its launch in 2015, the Ai mi Tagai exhibition and forum will present the work of artists who were previous participants, in addition to the work of professors who are acting advisors for the program. Ai mi Tagai will be held in Tokyo in 2019, and in London in 2020. Implemented as a collaboration between Central Saint Martins (CSM) and the Associate Studio Programme in London (created and managed in partnership with Acme Studios), and Tokyo University of the Arts and Youkobo Art Space in Tokyo, LTYE is an ongoing artist-in-residence (AIR) programme that aims to provide young artists who have recently graduated from art university with opportunities to stay, produce and exhibit overseas, while also encouraging international exchange among artists of the same generation. Ai mi Tagai, meaning “mutual empathy” (namely to understand the situation of another in similar circumstances and offer mutual support) , was chosen as the title of this exhibition as it encapsulates the particular characteristic of the LTYE Programme, while also signifying what we the organizers consider to be the meaning of international exchange.
