"J-COLLABO" Exhibition

Tenri Cultural Institute

poster for "J-COLLABO" Exhibition

This event has ended.

J-COLLABO is a new style of social network created for those interested in Japanese culture. It's a place where visual artists, photographers, film directors and others collaborate to create new forms of art together. Users develop art that represents "the essence of Japan" by incorporating styles from Japanese traditional arts and fusing them through a variety of mediums resulting in a fascinating sociocultural exchange. Thus, through this new style of art a universal dialogue is established, and new and beautiful potential is borne. Artists and the observers alike will have an opportunity to experience this outstanding result firsthand.
The theme for this season's show is "Heritage," in particular Japanese fairly tales which have been used for handing down the Japanese sense of beauty, customs, and social norms, etc. from generation to generation. These will be rendered in an unprecedented way. In general, they are written in such media as picture books and picture card show, but this time, artists in New York will try various approaches by using new media and reviewing traditional methods.
