Yamamoto Takayuki “Art Learning Lab: #ChildrensPride”


As you go about your day, have you ever thought life would be so much easier if a particular thing were “more like this,” or really wished something could be done a certain way? Well, here’s your chance to share those thoughts!

1. Think of some specific aspects of day-to-day living you’d like to see improved, and how.
2. Write one of those on a placard.
3. You can also draw a picture on your placard or decorate it.
4. Try setting up a call-and-response on Zoom for your cause.

In addition to this program, from August 2020 the Mori Art Museum website will also feature spoon-bending and cat-themed events run by Yamamoto.

About “Meet the Artists” Workshop Series
#1: Yamamoto Takayuki “Art Learning Lab”

Yamamoto Takayuki’s “Art Learning Lab” will kick off the “Meet the Artists” project series in August 2020. A former elementary school teacher, Yamamoto produces works that mine the creative potential of children’s conversations and games to encourage a new understanding of social systems and customs, challenging the viewer to contemplate the relationship between society and the individual. Surveying the world by looking at it from different angles, Yamamoto’s workshops offer “direct encounters with art” that show children how to find wonder and richness in everyday world. This program will experiment with various “encounters with art” in the “online workshop” format.

About “Meet the Artists” Workshop Series

From its very beginnings, Mori Art Museum has catered to visitors of all ages via a range of initiatives that include exhibition viewings for schools, and artist-led workshops for preschoolers, elementary and middle school-age children. In May, the Museum launched “LEARNING ONLINE” as part of the “MAM Digital” online program, and the “Meet the Artists” project series is designed to be a new, long-term component of “LEARNING ONLINE.” In each edition of the series, participants will be able to meet the artist and/or curator online, and converse with them directly in their own words. The aim will be to offer a fulfilling art experience digitally, in addition to the real-life, physical experience of art in the museum space. Though “Meet the Artists” may not be accessible in a real space, it will doubtless serve as a wonderful opportunity to expand our world together, through the power of imagination.
