MAM Research 006: Chronicle Kyoto 1990s
- Diamonds Are Forever, Art-Scape, And I Dance with Somebody

2018.10.6 [Sat] - 2019.1.20 [Sun]

Kyoto during the 1990s played host to a glorious explosion in overlapping creative activity around Dumb Type and other Kyoto City University of Arts alumni, from contemporary art to drag parties, AIDS and LGBT education, in a spontaneous Utopian experiment centered on a community in the city’s Sakyo-ku district. Amid today’s growing emphasis on human rights of all stripes, this exhibition may offer ideas for overcoming the obstacles to a better society.

About “MAM Research”

Japanese and Asian contemporary art is one of the main focuses of the Mori Art Museum’s programs, yet “Asia” covers a broad territory, making it difficult to grasp an overall picture of it. The “MAM Research” series intends to examine the multi-layered social, political and economic backgrounds that have given rise to Asian contemporary art and sees to shed light on their historical contexts, while focusing on individual artists, curators, art movements and art institutions throughout Asia. Premised on collaborative projects with archives, research institutions and scholars, “MAM Research” does not limit exibited items to “artworks” but also presents such materials as videos, photographs, texts and historical records.
