Japanese art has come a long way: a curator's top five 2010 exhibitions
Aki Sasamoto: Strange Attractors
For me, year 2010 became the year of change. After moving out from NY, I left my position at the cultural foundation of Tokyo, and became back to independent curator again. Through this process, I could recognize lots of things, such as structural problems of Japanese institutions, and the activities which I should focus on.
I would like to make the year of 2011 for the kick-start year of my long-term research and curatorial project called Eurasia (Euro-Asia=Eur-Asia). About the activities, I would like to introduce this blog also.
I wish year 2011 will be a wonderful year for all people in the world.
