The art of living (and dying) in Japan

24 April 2021 - 24 April 2021 1.00pm - 2.00pm
Centenary Auditorium
Join Kathryn Hunyor on a personal art journey as she explores important contemporary Japanese artists, collectives and regional projects she has encountered in Japan since the year 2000.

Highlighting interesting developments in Japanese society and culture over the past 20 years Kathryn will delve into the work of major artists including Tatsuo Miyajima, Yoshihiro Suda and Hiroshi Fuji; collectives such as Command N and 3331 Arts Chiyoda; and regional arts initiatives from Matsuyama, Niigata and Naoshima.

From birth-rates and Buddhism, to literature and life-and-death, how do these artists help us to appreciate both traditional and contemporary Japanese art, history and culture?
