Indefinable Cities / Japan

Indefinable Cities is traveling to 5 Cities in Japan, with Tsukiyo to Syonen. Curated by Koh Yoshida (JP) and Anna Francis (UK).

The exhibition explores the development of cities worldwide, and in particular looks to capture the way that artists are responding to and documenting cities in flux, and more; how artists impact on their environments and the regeneration of cities.

AirSpace Gallery and Tsukiyo to Syonen (Osaka, Japan) are working together to realise this ambitious project which forms a dialogue between artists in Japan and the UK, to explore the nature of artist-led activity in the two countries. The two organisations have strong visual arts programmes, but in addition, have shared interests in exploring the interface between art and environmental concerns, regeneration, development and citizenship. The ‘Indefinable Cities’ project provides an opportunity to form a dialogue around this area of practice, and creates a space for international conversations around the role that artists may have in contributing to the development of healthy, happy cities and what it means to have a socially engaged practice as an artist.
