AboutCoinciding with the 2013 Frieze London Art Fair in neighbouring Regent's Park, the Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation and the APT Institute are pleased to present the group exhibition Acting Out of Nothingness featuring the contemporary Japanese artists Kanako Sasaki, Koki Tanaka, Zon Ito, Goro Murayama, Motohiro Tomii, Masahiro Wada and Lyota Yagi. The exhibition will feature artworks lent by APT Institute from the Artist Pension Trust® (APT) collection, the largest lending library of artwork by leading and emerging contemporary artists from around the world.
Acting Out of Nothingness unites individual views through the lens of a shared interest in the everyday. Driven by ideas resonant to Japanese culture, the artworks explore and unearth hidden codes, which are often overlooked, in an apparently systematic and homogenised society. Challenging traditional perceptions, the exhibition layers new rhythms of individuality over the measured cadence of the artists' collective backgrounds.
APT Institute is a non-profit organization founded in 2013 by the Artist Pension Trust® in response to the needs among contemporary artists for global exposure and recognition of their artwork. Designed for curators, museums, and art organizations worldwide, Loans & Exhibitions facilitates loan requests and exhibition planning from the APT Collection; Art Concierge tailors art interactions between curators or other qualified art professionals and APT artists; and Global Connect arranges artist-in-residence programs, studios opportunities and artists networking exclusively for APT artists.
