Wrocław 2016

Fine Arts

Creation by young artists from Japan and Poland on the theme “Two Sticks”

Main outcome of the program was a wide range presentation of Japanese contemporary drawing attitudes and confrontation with Polish artists approach. Contacts and cooperation between Poland and Japan has been developed. There are plans for further cooperation according to Drawing Center, which is going to be established in Wrocław and Tokyo. Wrocław’s audience had chance to see interesting and fresh view on contemporary drawing installations located in specific gothic space, which is inspiring for Japanese artists. Participation of Sadaharu Horio, his live-performance with audience engagement has brought, together with Gutai documentary movie projection, deeper insight into Japanese avant-garde. All events of the program attracted a large number of visitors, who were declaring to see outstanding art in beautiful and demanding venues. A large catalog with rich content will be published in June 2016.
