Hirosaki Exchange

With this program, various projects in which artists from or related to Hirosaki, and artists who breathe new life into the history and traditional culture of the region, are invited for creation, research, and interaction with the local community. Additionally, various public programs, such as talks, lectures, and workshops are also held. As implied by the word “exchange,” this project creates opportunities for different viewpoints – local and global, creators and community residents and viewers – to intersect, interact, and resonate. With this new approach we aim to bring about a rediscovery of the creative appeal of the region.

#02 TERAYAMA Shuji

In Hirosaki Exchange #02, held in conjunction with a solo exhibition by Ozawa Tsuyoshi, we focus on Terayama Shuji, a Hirosaki-born, internationally active figure, who worked in a wide range of fields, including poetry, theatre, novel, film, and popular song, and developed a practice that transcended traditional artistic frameworks.
