On Tuesday March 2, 2010, the launch of the bilingual English/Japanese art publication Tokyo Visualist took place at Japan Society. Kohei Nawa and Taisuke Koyama, two of the 32 Japanese artists featured in this illustrated catalog along with the two publishers Masako Shinn and Satoru Yamashita introduced the book and selected artists. Tokyo Visualist is filled with interviews conducted by various specialists of Japanese contemporary art, from the international curator David Elliott, through the Museum of Modern Art’s curator Sarah Suzuki, to the publishers themselves, presenting a whole cross section of contemporary art practice in Japan, aptly labeled from Tokyo, but not exclusive to this city.
I had the chance to moderate the talk.
