Global Art Practice (GAP) is a newly established MFA program in the Graduate School of Fine Arts at Tokyo University of the Arts. Our innovative curriculum is characterized by the Global Art Joint Project, a course organized jointly with leading art schools abroad.
Faculty, assistants, and students from these partner institutions and from Tokyo University of the Arts organize distinct courses with an emphasis on social art practice (the practice of contemporary art in society).
This performance and installation at the Sogetsu Kaikan on July 21st 2018 is the final presentation of an international, inter-institutional collaboration, in which a diverse group of 18 students and four educators from Tokyo University of the Arts and Beaux-Arts de Paris worked together to create a site for experimentation in dance, performance and installation.
The visions of the students, educators and the two institutions together form a unique experience at the intersection of art education and experimentation. Please look forward to its final presentation at the Sogetsu Kaikan in July.
