Current Exhibition

Takayuki Yamamoto × Arts Meaebashi BEYOND 20XX

2019.07.19 - 2019.09.16

Arts Maebashi uses “creative,” “share,” and “dialogues” as three activity concepts, and we are working on a wide range of initiatives including collections, exhibitions, regional art projects, collaboration with schools and welfare facilities, and so on. At our facility, an artist, YAMAMOTO Takayuki, and Arts Maebashi curators discuss what learning through art is, and think about the future role of art and museums.

“Education reflects the vision of the future that the adults of that era and of that area envision,” says Yamamoto. In the new work Beyond 2020 Morals and Art which will be presented at this exhibit, creates works in conjunction with the public and shows the relationship of education and the future within a science fiction-like outlook on the world.

Our future is formed by connecting the past and the present through diverse “learning.” What world awaits beyond mutual “learning” through art?

YAMAMOTO Takayuki
Born in Aichi prefecture in 1974. While his academic studies were primarily focused on pedagogy, his artwork traverses a broad range of subject matter and explores many aspects of society and human nature. Yamamoto’s approach to artistic creation is simultaneously critical and humorous. His work has been presented in many major international exhibitions worldwide. He is currently investigating various approaches to education in order to deepen and broaden his idea of creation based on his concept of “moments of facing the unknown.”
The main exhibit will have “Go Betweens: The World Seen through Children” (Mori Art Museum and others 2014-2015), and Kochi-Muziris Biennale (India 2016). Recent solo exhibits include “Takayuki Yamamoto’s Children of Men” (Art Lab Aichi 2017). Recent works include “Art and Labor” (Co-authors, Yoshio Shirakawa and Atsushi Sugita and others, Suiseisha 2018).

Art Meets 06 MOMMA Miki/yang02

2019.07.19 - 2019.09.16

“Art Meets” is a series of exhibition to meet the creativity of new art through the works of mid-career artists. The sixth edition introduces MOMMA Miki  (born in 1981) and yang02 (born in 1984). Momma draw horses that is closely related to the history of the area where she was born and raised, and also continues to paint changing landscapes that she witnesses on the way to and from Tokyo after the Great East Japan Earthquake. yang02 is producing works that substitute human activities by technology such as appreciating works and making drawings.

For humanity, art and technology are both means to understanding the world. In order to co-exist with the other creatures on Earth, we must remember that they also have the ability to reconsider the self-confidence of the human through individual inquiries and perspectives.

【Next】The Ecology of Expression: Remaking Our Relations with the world

2019.10.12 - 2020.01.13

 At Arts Maebashi, through the “Forest of Expression” project, which is carried out in collaboration with fields such as welfare, and education, we are trying to reconnect the wholeness of life that is divided in modern society. This exhibition introduces 31 artists with the hope that the practice of recreating relationships with the world while spanning not only the present age but also history, as well as different regions, is an important role that has been entrusted to art.
