In the “Otomachi” (or “Sound Town”) Talk series, guests talk on a variety of themes. In this second such talk, the theme is “bringing in.”
The different processes participants in urban art projects of recent years become involved with in the course of their own individual projects develop altered relationships within the community. What, then, are the routine considerations of the artists and those connected with them concerning the interaction between their activities and the community stemming from the events these projects “bring in” ?
Artist Tohru Nakazaki will talk with local art activist Takashi Onda in the relaxed surroundings of the Takara-yu public bath in Senju, known for the charm of its traditional Japanese garden.
