Koki Tanaka: Provisional Studies: Action #5 Conceiving the Past, Perceiving the Present   JPsupported

The Japan Foundation is pleased to support a major new commission by Japanese artist Koki Tanaka held at The Showroom, London, which will be his first solo exhibition in the UK. Tanaka’s project departs from his interest in the local histories of The Showroom’s neighbourhood in Church Street, London. Through a series of communal actions and proposals in the lead up to and during the exhibition, involving a range of contributors, Tanaka suggests a composite approach towards how to read the present through the past, and about how these can be starting points for new social possibilities.


Date: 29 April 2016 - 18 June 2016
Venue:

The Showroom, London
63 Penfold St, London NW8 8PQ
