“Meet the Artists”
Han Ishu’s “Roppongi Art Class”
Roppongi Crossing 2022 Related Program
Conducted in Japanese
Launched in the summer of 2020, the “Meet the Artists” workshops give participants the opportunity to engage in art-based activities alongside artists and curators. For this workshop, Roppongi Crossing 2022: Coming and Going exhibition-featured artist Han Ishu will lead a one-off art class.
After hearing about Han’s art practice to date, participants will undertake some artmaking of their own, based on a particular theme, in an art class that may turn out to be a little different to what they imagined...
Don’t miss this chance to dive a little deeper into the world of art, courtesy of some face-to-face conversation with a working artist.
