Far East Contemporaries
Lecturer: Takahiro Kaneshima
FEC founded in 2007 to provide the platform for artists who are active in East Asia. “ARTS” (Agent, Residence, Think-tank and Support) is the central core of our activities and all projects are artists’ production oriented. In my lecture, I am going to introduce East Asian contemporary art scene which I understand through working, researching, writing and supporting artists’ activities, such as “Under the Cheery blossoms and Indoor Hot Spring” project by Liu Xiaodong (2007, Yokohama), Hyatt Hotel Project by Liu Jianhua (2008, Shanghai), Platform Exhibition Project (2008, Seoul), “Discharge Mode to Order” project by Tsumura Kosuke and Kaneuji Teppei (2008, Yokohama), Media installation project by SHIMURABROS .(2008-09, Yokohama), AIR project between Yokohama and Beijing and “Contemporary airy crafts from Japan” exhibition which I am planning in the end of 2009, Taipei. This lecture will also give some chances to see the similarities and differences of Japan, China, Korea and Taiwan.
