Eight highly respected Japanese curators of contemporary art will visit the Japan Foundation to give an insight into the contemporary art scene in Japan, as part of a curatorial tour of the UK organised by the British Council. Through a series of illustrative presentations, they will each talk about the activities of the museums they represent and their experience in contemporary art projects in various regions of Japan.
This unmissable event will be a great opportunity to meet and hear from a gathering of some of the curators who have contributed to the momentum in the Japanese contemporary art scene in recent years; offering a platform for the exchange of ideas and opinions between the UK and Japan.
