“Learning from Serendipity in Tama” is a research project led by artist Yoshiaki Kaihatsu set to begin in June which in four segments over the next year will see artists looking into ways to approach and collect the opinions of residents of the Tama Center area. The visions for the future of their community that emerges will be presented at the conclusion of the project.
Proceedings will be in Japanese.
Yoshiaki Kaihatsu takes everyday routines, incidents, and issues of concern for installations, performances, and similar events, with recollections, times, and experience providing the raw material of a continuing series of works taking “communication” as their theme. He supervises the Daylily Art Circus, formed in 2011 to support disaster relief, and his projects enlist a wide variety of artists to provide on a continuing basis whatever may lie within the capacity of art to accomplish.
