URGENT TALK SCHEDULE

Urgent Talk 028:
Rethinking the Artist Catalogue - Jun Yang’s Monograph Project
* Japanese-English simultaneous interpretation available

Today, despite the permeation of electronic media, the catalogues that accompany exhibitions and biennales and collections of artists’ works (monographs) show no sign of disappearing. In particular, monographs, which have existed for many years as means of introducing the activities of artists and sometimes even helping establish the credibility of or lend authority to an artist, have become increasingly diverse in terms of their format, page number and design. One of the participating artists of Mori Art Museum’s “ Roppongi Crossing 2016,” Jun Yang, based in Taiwan, Austria and Japan and who’s active on the international stage, is a conceptual artist who is also interested in the institutions and systems surrounding contemporary art. At “Urgent Talk 028,” he explores the possibilities of the artist catalogue based on his own 9-year-long project concerning monographs (a total of six volumes, all with different formats).
