I am please to have three paintings included in i:23, which is an international exchange between emerging contemporary art spaces in Tokyo / Yokohama and Los Angeles. ARTRA Curatorial has partnered with TYPE [Tokyo+Yokohama Projects Exchange] to bring this multi venue event to both cities - October in Tokyo and Yokohama with visiting Japanese artists coming June 2015 to Los Angeles.

Triennial


curatorial direction by Kio Griffith 
co-curated by Yuko Wakaume and Shingo Francis

The theme of 2014 Yokohama Triennial is
“Art Fahrenheit 451: Lost Sea at the center of Earth”
taking Ray Bradbury’s dystopian sci-fi classic, Fahrenheit 451 about the relevance of information fidelity of memory and transgressing culture.

The analogous theme of the Los Angeles - Tokyo/Yokohama exchange project, “i:23.” takes the iconic number 23, i.e. 23 kilogram capacity per luggage to pack a show in, 23 chromosomes to define DNA, the earth revolving at a 23 degree angle… looking into the relevance of identity, value, material and modern myths.

Artists make art, and galleries exhibit art. In other parts of our cities run artist spaces and alternative spaces anticipating activation. Spanning two cities and a large body of water, i:23 explores the worlds of 18 art spaces in Tokyo / Yokohama and Los Angeles. 

By pairing galleries and creating the opportunity to exchange both their artists and their spaces, i:23 will present exhibitions in Japan (October 2014) and in Los Angeles (June 2015) showcasing a deep cross section of current practice from the two cities.

Each space will present a curated exhibition comprising both visiting artists and their ‘local’ or represented artists, with an emphasis to include work by those who run the spaces.
