Yoro Art Picnic

www.yoro-arts.com

 

Yoro falls, which boasts a 1,300 year history, and the Site of Reversible Destiny, which can be called a sacred ground of contemporary art: Yoro park is home to these two picturesque sites, and it is here that new event will be born. The setting will be the park’s gently sloping lawn. We will line up a number of tents and hold a lively function. There, free from obstructive thoughts, you may open your eyes in wonder while working up a sweat. You may remember someone far away and your heart may pound with the excitement of discovery. With the autumn wind blowing through the brightly colored leaves, you may catch a glimpse of a future that connects the past with the present, and life with architecture. The Yoro Art Picnic is a mere two days, but it is nowhere! We hope to see you there.

9:00pm | Discussion & Q&A

Join Reversible Destiny Foundation and Dillon + Lee in the film screening of Arakawa's Why Not (A Serenade of Eschatological Ecology) (1969) at Williamsburg's National Sawdust. Renowned for his paintings, drawings, prints, and visionary architectural constructions, Arakawa was one of the earliest practitioners of the international Conceptual Art movement of the 1960's. His wide range of experimentation extended into filmmaking. Why Not is a surrealistic exploration, by a young female protagonist, of both her psychological and physical realms, shot entirely within an enclosed space of an apartment (Arakawa's studio). The screening is a rare opportunity to see it in full, in the backdrop of the innovative venue of National Sawdust.  The program is introduced by Miwako Tezuka, Consulting Curator of the Reversible Destiny Foundation and Diana Lee, partner of Dillon + Lee, and followed by a post-screening discussion and Q&A with Peter Katz, the Foundation’s Executive Director and Jay Sanders, Artists Space Executive Director and Chief Curator. 

Program Participants:

Peter Katz has led the Reversible Destiny Foundation as Executive Director since 2015. He was previously the Chief Operating Officer at MoMA PS1 from 2011 to 2014 and also worked at the Neue Galerie, MoMA, and the Guggenheim in their finance and administration departments.

 

Diana Seo Hyung Lee is a New York City based writer, translator, and partner of Dillon + Lee. Her writing and translations have appeared in Flash Art, The Brooklyn Rail, ArtSlant, Degree Critical Blog, ArtAsiaPacific, Seaweed Journal, and The Forgetory, an online publication she helped start, where she currently serves as a contributing editor.

 
Jay Sanders is Director & Chief Curator of Artists Space in New York City. From 2012–2017 he was the Engell Speyer Family Curator and Curator of Performance at the Whitney Museum of American Art. His recent exhibition Calder: Hypermobility is on view at the Whitney through October 23, 2017.
 
Miwako Tezuka is Consulting Curator of the Reversible Destiny Foundation since 2015. Formerly, she was Japan Society Gallery Director (2012–15) and Curator of Contemporary Art at Asia Society in New York (2005–12). Dr. Tezuka is also Co-Director of PoNJA-GenKon, an international network of scholars and curators in the field of post-1945 Japanese art.

Triple Canopy presents special screening “Children who won’ t die, ARAKAWA”

Special Screening "Children Who Won’t Die, ARAKAWA"

November 3, 2016 7:00 p.m.

264 Canal Street, 3W, New York, New York

Free admission

 

Triple Canopy is pleased to present a screening of Children Who Won’t Die (2010). Directed by Nobu Yamaoka and scored by composer Keiichiro Shibuya, the documentary is a meditation on the work of Japanese artist Arakawa and his efforts, with his wife and creative partner Madeline Gins, to “reverse destiny” and free humanity from the necessity of death.

 

Arakawa, who died in 2010, and Gins, who died in 2014, advocated for their singular vision of immortality through works of visual art, philosophical and poetic writings, and architecture. Considering the lived environment to be of the utmost importance to their project, the duo designed housing using esoteric principles they called “architectural procedures,” such as “biotopological scale-juggling” and “tentativeness cradling.” The resulting spaces are meant to simultaneously expand inhabitants’ physical capacities and challenge their intransigent modes of thought. As Arakawa and Gins write in Making Dying Illegal (2006), living in such a “tactically posed surround/tutelary abode” is “an all-out effort to go on living,” and, in their view, an ethical mandate for all of humanity.

 

Juxtaposing the duo’s utopic transhumanism with quotidian reality, the film intersperses talks and lectures by Arakawa with depictions of life in the first permanently habitable work of procedural architecture: the Reversible Destiny Lofts, built in Mitaka, Tokyo, in 2005. Living in kaleidoscopic apartments with spherical rooms, undulating pebble floors, and doorless toilets, the lofts’ tenants lose weight, see long-lost friends in their dreams, and develop stronger arches in their feet—all while pondering whether the architecture will truly enable them to live forever, as Arakawa and Gins propose.

 

Children Who Won’t Die is part of Triple Canopy’s Vanitas issue, which explores contemporary meditations on mortality as well as the delights, delusions, and pressures of fleshly existence. The issue will also include an essay on the anti-death architecture of Arakawa and Gins by Triple Canopy senior editor Matthew Shen Goodman and Lucy Ives. The film is in Japanese with English subtitles, and will be introduced by Shen Goodman.

 

Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. In order to ensure that events are accessible and comfortable, we’ll open the doors at 6:30 p.m. and strictly limit admittance to our legal capacity. Please check Triple Canopy’s Facebook and Twitter accounts for updates, as we’ll indicate if events are sold out.

Triple Canopy’s venue is located at 264 Canal Street 3W, near several Canal Street subway stations. Our floor is accessible by elevator (63" × 60" car, 31" door) and stairway. Due to the age and other characteristics of the building, our bathrooms are not ADA-accessible, though several such bathrooms are located nearby. If you have specific questions about access, please write at least three days before the event and we will make every effort to accommodate you.

PANEL DISCUSSION

PRESENTED BY
Reversible Destiny Foundation & Asia Contemporary Art Week

 

HOSTED BY
artnet
Woolworth Building
233 Broadway, 26th Floor, New York, NY 10279

 

The Reversible Destiny Foundation is dedicated to supporting research and a greater public interest in the artistic practices of Arakawa and Madeline Gins, further advancing and preserving their legacy. The 11th edition of Asia Contemporary Art Week is a season-long event, lasting from September 8 to November 18. This platform connects over 40 art institutions from Asia and New York, with the goal of promoting cutting-edge exhibitions, innovative projects, and provocative dialogue. The program will be moderated by Dr. Miwako Tezuka, consulting curator of the Reversible Destiny Foundation. For questions regarding the event, please email miwakotezuka@reversibledestiny.org.

 

 

Arakawa – Born in Nagoya, Japan, Arakawa rebelled against the Japanese art world of the late 1950s. Fiercely independent and inspired by Marcel Duchamp’s “art in the service of the mind,” he moved to New York in 1961. This growing city of avant-garde experimentation attracted artists from all over the world, including many from Japan, such as Ay-O, On Kawara, Naoto Nakagawa, and Yoko Ono. Living in the midst of the New York art scene in the 1960s and 70s, Arakawa along with his peers became integral to the emergence of the Minimalist and Conceptual Art movements.

 

This panel discussion invites distinguished speakers to share their perspectives on the art and philosophy of Arakawa, and how they may be contextualized within the international art of the era. Dr. Charles Mark Haxthausen has authored key texts on deciphering the artist’s often-cryptic artwork by applying art historical and philosophical analyses. The painter Naoto Nakagawa became acquainted with Arakawa in 1965, and recalls the time he spent in the fellowship of like-minded artists. Dr. Reiko Tomii, with her in-depth knowledge of Post-War Japanese art history, keenly detects what changed and what remained constant in his art during the two decades that thrust him into the world.

 

 

Panelists

 

Charles Mark Haxthausen is an emeritus Robert Sterling Clark professor of art history at Williams College, where he taught from 1993 to 2016. He has played a significant international role as a curator and consultant in the field of Modern and contemporary German art. Known for his work on artist Paul Klee, he has published numerous articles on German artists and critics, and edited the book The Two Art Histories: The Museum and the University, and co-edited Berlin: Culture and Metropolis. His exhibition, Sol LeWitt: The Well-Tempered Grid, presented at the Williams College Museum of Art in 2012, won the Association of Art Museum Curators’ Award for Excellence. His book, Carl Einstein: Refiguring Visuality, has been recently published by the University of Chicago Press.

 

Naoto Nakagawa was born in Kobe, Japan in 1944 and immigrated to New York in 1962. His paintings have been widely exhibited, starting in 1968 at the legendary avant-garde Judson Gallery, and more recently at Feature Inc. in New York. His work has been shown alongside a two-part survey of Nakagawa’s work at WhiteBox and Ethan Cohen Fine Arts, and can be found in many public and private collections, including the Museum of Modern Art in New York. He has taught at Columbia University and the Parsons School of Design.

 

Dr. Reiko Tomii is an independent art historian who investigates post-1945 Japanese art in global and local contexts. Her research topics encompass international contemporaneity, collectivism, and conceptualism in the art of the 1960s. She has contributed to exhibitions such as “Global Conceptualism” at the Queens Museum of Art in 1999, “Century City” at the Tate Modern in 2001, and “Art, Anti-Art, Non-Art” at the Getty Research Institute in 2007. Her book, Radicalism in the Wilderness: International Contemporaneity and 1960s Art in Japan, was published by MIT Press in the Spring of 2016.
