GAP Open Studio @ Chinretsukan Gallery – In progress is an open studio presenting the current activities of the Global Art Practice Course, Graduate School of Fine Arts at Tokyo University of the Arts (hereafter, GAP). The GAP atelier, where students work and create, has been temporarily relocated from Toride to Ueno. 

In this event, the first-year master’ s students showcase the work-in-progress of the Global Art Joint Project – an exchange program with Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London, and École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Paris. Second-year students will present an interim show as they head toward their final work. Also, the lectures, critiques, and workshops normally held in Toride will be conducted here at Chinrestukan Gallery.

GAP was newly established in 2016. We hope to use this opportunity to bring its course contents and other ventures to a broad audience, both campus-wide and beyond.

What is the music of people who can not hear?

People who have different experiences, such as deaf performers and artist listeners, musicians, think and talk together to explore new possibilities of music that are different from the “music” that has been captured so far.



Eri Makihara
Deaf film director Yuri Makihara has considered that “there is music born from silence.” For example, she says that “music” can be felt from the musical film “Westside Story”, the Awa dance, and the dance of the Pina Bausch dance group. And she produced the movie”Listen” (2016) with deaf’s dancer DAKEI. In the silent 58-minute film, the work in which various “music” expressions created by Deaf people have received a great response.

Ong Keng Sen’s practical and theoretical practice goes beyond his profession as a theatre director. He is an artist and the prominent thinker of arts in Asia. In particular, Flying Circus Project, established as a platform to foster emerging artists, is marked as one of the most significant projects in modern and contemporary art scene in East Asia. The project crosses a boundary between visual arts and performing arts, and explores the new possibility of arts. He worked as the artistic director of Singapore International Festival of Arts (SIFA) between 2014 and 2018; his innovative and challenging activity to relate arts and society in Singapore is highly acclaimed. He also established Arts Network Asia in order to support young artists who are interested in international collaboration in which he widely contributes to foster a number of young emerging artists.

Recently, his project and research engages in, and delves into the theme of ‘singularity’ and ‘potentiality’. Social Practice Seminar of MFA Global Art Practice recently invites internationally high-profiled artists and thinkers as an opportunity to share and discuss global issues. Following the seminars with YOUNG-HAE CHANG HEAVY INDUSTRIES and Song Dong & Yin Xiuzhen last year, we are happy to invite Ong Keng Sen as this year’s first guest lecturer to further our discussion of Asian and global issues.


 近年は「シンギュラリティー」や「ポテンシャリティー」をテーマに、活動を展開すると同時に理論的な展開を深めていっている。 グローバルアートプラクティス専攻の社会実践論では、ここ数年、アジア出身で国際的な活躍をするアーティストや思索者を招き、グローバルな課題を共有し、討議する機会を設けている。昨年度のチャン・ヨンヘ重工業、ソンドン +イン・シウジェンに続き、今年度の第1回はオン・ケンセンを講師として、アジアそしてグローバルな課題を討議します。

Chizuko Ueno Special Lecture “Art and Gender” | 上野千鶴子特別講演会のお知らせ 「アートとジェンダー」

Date:Monday, 12 November 2018, 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. (JST)
Venue:Lecture room 1, 1F Chuo-Building, Tokyo University of the Arts Ueno Campus 12-8, Ueno Park, Taito-ku, Tokyo
会場:東京藝術大学上野校地中央棟1F 第1講義室 東京都台東区上野公園12-8

How have women been portrayed within the realm of art? Gender’s asymmetry, the man’s view and the viewed woman, is a traditional representation as well as a concept that is seen to be the norm by the current society. However, the undercurrent of violence that exists in artistic expressions, like the relationship between the artist and the model, has started to be reconsidered in Japan as well, due to the recent movements like #MeToo. It is important for artists to carefully consider the issues surrounding gender more than ever. In this lecture held at Tokyo University of the Arts, we are inviting Dr. Chizuko Ueno, who is one of the pioneering researchers specializing in gender and is also a leading theorist and sociologist. We will examine the relationship between gender and expression from various angles including, sexuality, narcissism, symbolism of nude and sexual organs and the politics that exists in the gaze. This lecture will be a fantastic opportunity to think about an old but new theme of art and gender from a contemporary point of view.
