Agenda: January 24 - February 06, 2011 / feat. Masashi Hattori

Have you seen the logos on the sidebar? There are two events in Osaka I'm involved in, and they are (among others) the reason why the Agenda will cover two weeks for a few months now. Looking forward to tell you more about those events soon.

By Masashi Hattori
This fortnight's feature:
Masashi Hattori's installation at Kyoto Art Center
As a part of the CRIA exhibition

Can you guess how this painting was done?

Let me give you a hint. The title is "Hand - Rainbowshoot - Foot".

And it is sports related.

Actually, I'm not so fond of this sport. When I watch it, to be honest, I'm more interested in the design of the jerseys, or the way the sponsors are reprensented in advertisments.

But some modification of the game, like the one Masashi Hattori suggests here, could redirect my attention to the ball...

You've guessed it. It was done by penalty shootout! Soccer.

Don't miss the 'making of'-video and watch how the goal scorer examines the result on the canvas after the shoot. You'll never be able to look at a "normal" goal like this...

Foreigner’s Live Art Guide
For more exhibitions and events about art and design in Osaka rely on FLAG.

On the Agenda are events in Kyoto - and also in Osaka and Kobe - that I'm interested in and plan to attend -- shamelessly subjective.
Although the list isn't meant to be complete, I hope it provides some valuable tips for those interested in art and design in Kansai.

Kindly note that the above dates and times are subject to change.
