Save the Date(s): Aki Sasamoto at Take Ninagawa

Aki Sasamoto’s first solo show in Japan is a homecoming of sorts. Sasamoto, who was born in Yokohama, received her MFA in Visual Art from Columbia University, and had made New York her home since. The current show at Take Ninagawa gallery is based on the project commissioned to the artist for the 2010 Whitney Biennial, but now it addresses a new set of contextual variables—geographical and cultural. The exhibition was inaugurated with a performance on December 18, and I have posted here the pictures I took during the one she held December 26. More performances are coming on December 29 and January 9, 16, 29. All start at 16:00. Attendance is free, but it is a good idea to contact the gallery as spaces are limited.
