Atsuko Nakamura x Chen,Ting-Chun "Let's talk about Art"


Have you ever think about what art is and why artists make artworks? Art relates to the fundamental aspects of many things in life. This event offers a good opportunity to discover different aspects of art by looking at it, listening to it, sharing ideas about it, or even questioning its existence. Let's talk about art, not only from the perspective of art, but also from the viewpoints of other domains.

In the first part of event, Mr. Kaito and Mr. Nakano will give a lecture, after showing the audiences some artworks from Koganecho. Mr. Akira Kaito is an expert on psychology and art-treatment, will share with us how inner feelings of human beings appear in art forms and the transformation of unconsciousness into expression. Mr. Hitoshi Nakano, who has curated many exhibitions in different countries, will talk about the key role art plays in connecting artists with the society. He will also discuss about why introducing emotion-based artworks is significant to the society. Then, all the participants will carry out discussions based on the three speeches. We very look forward to interesting conversation among guests, the local artists and the audiences.

What is art exactly? Why don't you share your opinion at this exciting, fun event? We are sure it will bring you new ideas in return! (The simultaneous interpretation in Japanese-English is available.)
