WEEKLY SPOTLIGHT TALKS
Spotlight on WAVE
「WAVE: Currents in Japanese Graphic Arts」展 スポットライトギャラリーツアー
Take a closer look at selected artworks featured in the wide-ranging exhibition WAVE: Currents in Japanese Graphic Arts through a series of short spotlight talks taking place within the Japan House London Gallery.
The series opens with presentations by a number of visiting artists discussing their own works featured in the exhibition, with subsequent talks by Japan House London team members and other speakers from various backgrounds and disciplines.
Each session, showcasing a single artwork, is different and packed with information, inviting guests to take a glimpse into one of the numerous and diverse artworks presented in the current exhibition. Every talk offers an individual approach and personal touch, as the artworks are chosen by the speakers themselves.
Spotlight talks last about 15 to 30 minutes and begin in front of the Gallery on Japan House London’s Lower Ground floor promptly at the start time.
Please see the programme below for details, or read more about the artists featured in WAVE.
