To mark the end of the series of events relating to the ‘Italia Zokugo‘ project, dedicated to contemporary Italian art, on 1 October 2021 the Italian Cultural Institute of Tokyo will open a group exhibition conceived and curated by Gabriele Tosi, in collaboration with the artist Yoshida Moe Yoshida and with the participation Hikaru Taga‘s Gallery Taga2.

The small but substantial overview on display is intended to serve as a guide for interpreting an important dimension of Italian artistic creativity from yesterday, today and, probably, tomorrow.

The works of ten different artists weave together a conversation that is serious, light-hearted, passionate and irreverent all at once, and which aims make the highbrow tradition feel more concrete.  Although sometimes distorted to the point of parody, this tradition remains recognizable, just as the national language remains recognizable in its vernacular and slang incarnations.
