Archival material from the project Oyako de Art Exhibition 2017-2019 in Tachikawa was shown in hybrid form at Tachikawa-shi Kodomomirai Center and online.
As well as looking back on exhibitions to date, the aim of the event was to share a comprehensive picture of the project, which combines elements of art projects and citizen-driven activities. Through these exhibitions, organizers hoped to use the project as an opportunity to work together with local citizens and explore sustainable art, even in difficult circumstances.
Planned/organized by: Hokuto Narikiyo
Oyako de Art Exhibition in Tachikawa was an exhibition project developed and spearheaded by artists to “create a place for art in society” for the purpose of connecting society and art. Exhibitions were held each year between 2017 and 2019 at the Tachikawa-shi Kodomomirai Center complex in Tachikawa City, Tokyo. The project has provided opportunities for a diverse range of local people to experience art, including children and their parents, who would normally find it difficult to access art while rearing children.
Established in 2015 with the aim of demonstrating the social usefulness of art and artists. All members are young artists and creators with a background of specialist education at art college who undertake their professional interests and directions separately. Based in the Tama area of Tokyo, the group develops art projects, art and design workshops, exhibitions, etc.
Director: Hokuto Narikiyo, born in Osaka Prefecture in 1986. In recent years his work has concentrated on the concept of creating art-focused environments and events, such as art project planning, as a new form of expression.
