Chikako Yamashiro
White Rainbow
Gallery / London

White Rainbow reopened in March 2018 with a new 12 month program of solo exhibitions and projects by leading contemporary Japanese artists Chikako Yamashiro, Chim Pom, Aki Sasamoto, Taro Izumi, Meiro Koizumi and Mari Katayama. White Rainbow’s new fixed-term program seeks to spotlight artistic practices never before seen in the UK. The organization’s new non-profit model will support artist development, championing the work of emerging and mid-career Japanese artists working in a range of media, with particular focus on performance, film and installation-based practices. The six artists collectively question the structures that govern our everyday lives, with artistic investigations into contested military territories, the disabled body, the politics of gentrification, and immigration rights within an increasingly nationalistic global framework. For each of the six artist projects, White Rainbow will publish a new artist monograph, including newly commissioned essays and artist responses. From 2014-17 White Rainbow operated as a commercial gallery, presenting the work of international artists with a focus on contemporary art from Japan.

    Mudam
    Luxembourg
    We all have ideas of what a contemporary art museum should be. Those who founded Mudam Luxembourg, for example, envisioned a museum that would encompass many aspects of contemporary culture, such as art, design and architecture. While one believes the museum to be a place for the presentation of modern art, others view it as a showcase for Luxembourgish creation. And some see Mudam as a space for collectivity, for openness, for events and an experimental approach. (more…)

    Saskatoon, Canada

We are all subjects of tracking, not only by cameras employed purportedly as a deterrent for crime but also by digital tools used by corporations and governments alike to monitor and evaluate our actions, needs, and desires.

    The knowledge of one’s inner self as the sole tool for self-fulfillment, for stoically embracing the human condition in all its turmoils – that is what ancient Greeks used to call Oikeiôsis. The same word was chosen by Mara Palena to call a project that unfolds over the duration of existence. The analog images shot by the artist from her childhood to today do not follow any external precept. (more…)
