We are pleased to announce that Yoshimi Arts and ‘the three konohana’ will jointly curate the virtual exhibition, “Online / Contactless”.
The show, to be exhibited in ‘the three konohana’, will feature the works of five artists from two galleries. The actual exhibition space will be substituted with video footage of the installation and online talks are to be scheduled during the exhibition period. The opportunity to purchase products online, via a cashless platform, will also be provided.
For the online talks, we have invited art critic, Yuya Maeda, to review the individual activities and movements by exhibiting artists and gallerists during the coronavirus crisis. Prescient changes and prospects for the future will also be discussed.
Due to the outbreak of COVID-19, many exhibitions and events have been postponed or canceled in the art world, depriving artists of physical presentation opportunities, and audiences of a firsthand viewing experience. However, art galleries and museums have started to respond to this difficult situation and are shifting from physical to virtual viewing, mainly through social networking platforms.
The physical aspect remains deeply rooted in the foundation of the gallery system, as its management is largely dependent on providing a platform for artworks and their audiences, artists and gallerists to have direct and intimate contact. For this reason, although our activity has been restricted throughout the middle of the pandemic, we consider operations will return to normal once the coronavirus crisis ends. At the same time, we also anticipate the potential development of a new system and way of thinking brought about by necessary adaptations during this extraordinary period. Given the current restrictions on congregating in large groups, adjusting to this reality by exploring exhibitions and events through a new approach will enable us to broaden our perspective and envisage next-generation galleries and presentation platforms for artists.
