Roppongi Crossing 2019 Related Program
Conducted in Japanese
Takekawa Nobuaki’s contribution to this year’s Roppongi Crossing, Cat Olympics (2018), posits critiques of who the 2020 Tokyo Olympics are actually for, and underneath all the hype, what is being lost. Meanwhile, Yamagata-based Mise Natsunosuke focuses on the future of the relationship between urban and rural. At the Yamagata Biennale in 2018, Mise curated Contemporary Yamagata Thought: Is restoration possible? Community/Region/Japan. This exhibition, which encouraged viewers to rethink the relationship between ourselves and art, by displaying the kind of pre-modern artworks and cultural treasures being lost in Yamagata, addressed what is in fact a pressing issue for most of Japan’s regions. As the capital consumes even more attention ahead of the Tokyo Olympics in 2020, this talk will look at the Japan of 2021 onward, from the different perspectives of two artists.
