2014 B&A Show in Tokyo, Japan

先週、日本のB&A 展 に今回初めて、インストールから出席させていただきました。B&Aミニストリーズには2011年の東日本大震災後、主催者の町田先生にコンタクトをとって以来、メンバーとならせて頂いていますが、今回初めて、他のメンバーの方々ともお会いすることができました。
Last week, I participated in the B&A Show in Japan for the first time since the installation.  I have been a member of B&A Ministries since I contacted Rev. Machida after 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake.  This time, I was able to see the other members of B&A for the first time.

The show was held at the Kumin Gallery of Meguro Museum of Art, Tokyo.

The gallery was in the basement.   It was exciting to be in this beautiful staircase area approaching to the gallery.

Installing and lighting were done by the contractors. 

The theme for this year's show was "Think Peace." Artists created works commemorating the 70th anniversary since the end of WWII next year.  The title of my work is "Peace, To the Next Generation."  It was an installation piece with threads and used dryer sheets.

手前は香港から参加の三浦冨美子さんの作品 「In the Light」
The work in the front is "In the Light" by Fumiko Miura from Hong Kong.

「平和」というテーマは今年度と来年度の一環としたテーマだそうで、この美術展だけでなく、美術館などでの勉強会なども企画されているそうです。興味のある方はぜひ、ご参加ください。詳しくはB&A Centerまで
Over 100 works by 48 artists were exhibited this time.  The show and my work were introduced in this online magazine.  
They are planning to visit museums and other activities to continue to think and study about 'peace' during this year and next year.  If you are interested, please contact B&A Center.
