Since its establishment in 2001, Tokyo Wonder Site (TWS) has been dedicated to the discovery and support of emerging young artists. "TWS-NEXT" is a new program designed to offer continuous support to young creators that have previously participated in other TWS programs such as "TWS-Emerging" and "Creator-in-Residence program".
In this exhibition introducing young artists who create research-based works, four groups of artists present their latest works focusing on the history of the Ueno area in which the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum (tobikan) is located. The common theme is "the escape of a panther from Ueno Zoo", one of the three major incidents that occurred in 1936 (along with the "the February 26 Incident" and the "Abe Sada Incident"). While historical events are singular, they are individually interpreted and memorized in various ways after being filtered through human perception. Adding again new viewpoints to a historical event, the artists' works seem to indicate quite unintentionally the vagueness and precariousness of communicating history.
Please look forward to witnessing the expanding activities of a new generation of creators in and beyond TWS programs.
