Tatsuo Miyajima, one of Japan’s most renowned contemporary artists, is known for his sculptures and room-scale installations incorporating light and numbers.
Tatsuo Miyajima: Connect With Everything encompasses his sculptural works, rooms and environments, and performance videos. Time and its passage are explored through the works and represented visually by multiple, small digital counting devices. Miyajima developed his first customised digital counters in the late 1980s, using light emitting diodes or LEDs. These ‘counter gadgets’ remain central to his art today, their red and green palette expanding in the mid-1990s to include blue, then white, as LED technology developed in and beyond Japan.

Songs of the Phoenix Mirror explores the full range and cultural significance of internationally renowned artist Wei Ligang’s current calligraphic practice. Through documents and archival footage, the exhibition reviews Wei’s artistic and intellectual development from the late 1980’s onwards. It surveys his major calligraphic styles: his signature “magic squares” and its variations; his monumental continuous cursive script inspired by Fu Shan (1607-1684) and other 17th-century masters; and his cursive renditions of the engraved lines of seals, steles, and Oracle bones.
Wei Ligang undertook his ACC Fellowship in 2006 in New York.

This year marks the twelfth year Taiwan has participated in the Glenfiddich Artists in Residence program. 12 is also the number of years it takes for Jupiter, an astrological symbol for faith and wisdom, good fortune and growth, to complete one orbital cycle. Over the past 12 years the Glenfiddich artist’s village has been home to many Taiwanese artists. These creative talents are now brought together for the first time in an exhibition at Kuandu Museum of Fine Arts, titled Springs Eternal: Glenfiddich Artists in Residence - 12 Years from Taiwan.
The collection from one of Japan’s leading collectors of contemporary art, Ryutaro Takahashi, contains over 2500 pieces and is continuing to expand on a large scale. The “Neoteny Japan Takahashi Collection”, which was displayed in seven art museums across the country between 2008 and 2010, contained many indispensible works which provided an overview of Japanese contemporary art since the 1990s, and was recognized as an extremely important collection, both nationally and abroad. This time, the exhibition “Mindfulness! 2016” showcases those who have driven Japan’s contemporary art, beginning with the center point of Takahashi’s collection, Yayoi Kusama, and following on with a range of artists, from Tadanori Yokoo, Yasumasa Morimura, Katsura Funakoshi, to Yoshitomo Nara, Takashi Murakami, Makoto Aida and Tomoko Konoike. This includes artists who have a connection with Kochi Prefecture, from Sawako Goda, Chiharu Shiota and Kazuyuki Takezaki, to notable young artists, including Erina Matsui and Asami Kiyokawa, allowing you to savor the delights of Takahashi’s collection in an exhibition arrangement.
We are what we eat. As the old saying goes, food/eating makes the core component of our life, with providing some fun and joy to us. It also serves as the simplest and essential form of communication that connects us with family and society, with nature, with belief, with culture or memories. Impacted by the development of industry and technology, any food is now available in and out of season, which has significantly altered the relationship between individual and food. Seeing such relationship afresh, extending from our body and memories to natural environment or universe, is surely important at a time of extraordinary change. ”Foodscape” is to reflect on the future of food/eating through artistic expressions. This is in part third of the exhibition series dedicated to the subject of “everyday life”, following “Wardrobe Memories” (2014) and “Living Locally” (2015).Since 2013,Arts Maebashi has been carrying on a dining project Kaze no Shokudo :The Wind Restaurant to explore the current situation of regional food and agricultural culture with Fenrando Garcia Dory, Nanpushokudo and HOO.
