2011 is just over a week away and we have already a fully packed program to kick off the year.
With "Words and Pictures - Important things we learn from children - beyond time and borders" starting tomorrow and running until 23rd January this is a great opportunity to see the world through different eyes, those of children from different counrties all over the globe. With regular workshops, talk events and guided tours there is also plently of opportunity for all the family to get involved.
Following this exhibition we are proud to present the special exhibition of POCORART from 28th January-10th February. POCORART is based upon the philiosphy of open arts access to all. Running regular events at 3331 to open the centre to a wide range of people, especially those with disabilities, POCORART takes a step further this January/February to celebrate the talent of the next generation of young artists and creatives who have disabilities. With submissions from all over the country this will be a highly select but diverse exhibition presenting some of the most unique and exciting creative production being engaged in throughout Japan.
Next we have an international exhibition bringing together artists from Australia, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Taiwan, as well as Japan, bringing their ecletic cultures and experiences together to shine new light on the local neighbourhood of Chiyoda and wider Tokyo. The artists will be joining in a one month residency program in which they will produce original work in response to their new environment as well as engaging directly with local residents and visitors to 3331 through workshops and participatory events.
And as if that wasn't enough, the second half of March sees the launch of our schooling program "Arts Field Tokyo" presents its graduation exhibition with a fully curated show entitled "Social Divers" bringing a group of young artists together who experiment in social disciplines of art.
Plenty of reasons to look forward to 2011!
