Press Release:

Curated by Reiko Tomii, Views of Life presents eight Japanese artists, five based in New York and three in Japan, who cast an intent look on “life” in its many different manifestations, personal, social, or historical. In doing so, some of them also interrogate the meaning of “viewing” itself. Taken together, Views of Life showcases a wide range of emerging and promising talents, each contributing to this exhibition works that encapsulate the essence of their aesthetic and theoretical engagements with today’s complex world.

During the opening reception, there will be a screening of Takako Oishi’s work in the exhibition, followed by a tasting of extraordinary cookies made by Jane Hansen, the subject of Oishi’s video.

Artist: Toru Hayashi, Takashi Horisaki, Kenjiro Kitade, Hiroko Nakao, Takako Oishi, Katsuhiro Saiki, Noriko Shinohara, Kohei Yamashita
