New Artists Today Exhibition 2021 - Contours of Life
Ends in 16 days
This exhibition is the successor to the “Artists Today” exhibition that was held for 40 years since the Yokohama Civic Gallery opened in 1964. This year’s exhibition will focus on “Contours of the Everyday” and will introduce two artists working in Japan and abroad. Due to the occurrence or progression of unexpected events, the familiar and taken-for-granted everyday life has undergone a dizzying yet simultaneously gradual transformation. In the process, people go through their days hesitating and adapting to the changes. On the other hand, there are times when people are reminded of the unchanging and repetitive nature of their daily lives.
Kazutomo Tashiro has visited various places such as northern Kyushu including his hometown Fukuoka, South Korea, Sanriku, and Fukushima after the Great East Japan Earthquake, and has taken portraits based on fresh encounters with each land, people, and region.
Aya Momose’s work focuses on the desires and oppressions that arise during communication between people, and the nature of the body.
This exhibition is an opportunity to face “today” while capturing the ambiguous contours of our daily lives by recalling the time we spent casually and reaffirming familiar environments and things through works that show the multilayered nature of events and the fluctuating relationship between self and others. It creates an opportunity to face “today.”
