This event has ended.

Nozomi Tanaka was born in Miyagi prefecture in 1989, and is presently enrolled in a doctoral program in the Graduate School of Art and Design at Tohoku University of Art and Design. For this exhibition in Yokohama, a port city by the sea, she is showing a new series in which she depicts conditions in the towns and villages of northeastern Japan that she has visited in the style of ship paintings “funa-e”. A large number of these ship paintings will be brought together in the Yokohama Museum of Art. The title of the exhibition, “Shiotsuchi,” is the name of a god who appears in the “Nihon Shoki” (Chronicles of Japan). “Shiotsuchi” was known for his profound knowledge of the sea and was associated with controlling ocean currents and the manufacture of salt. He acted as a guide for ocean voyages of the gods. On this occasion, this guardian deity will guide the ships that Tanaka has painted to Yokohama. Drawings and documentation of the creative process will be exhibited along with the paintings.
