5.30pm to 7.30pm
Camberwell College of Arts
A talk by artist Masahiro Suda, curator of the Camberwell Space exhibition Behind the Brushstroke, followed by a calligraphy demonstration by Houran Yokoyama.
Masahiro Suda is a painter, working in Nagoya, Japan, and is currently Professor of Nagoya University of Arts. His work has been widely exhibited in Tokyo, Nagoya, London, Cologne, Berlin, Vilnius, Bangkok and Beijing. He worked and researched in London for the academic year 2008 – 09, at the Research Centre for Transnational Art Identity Nation (TrAIN), University of the Arts London.
Houran Yokoyama was born into a family of calligraphers and learnt the art of traditional Japanese calligraphy from an early age. As he grew interested in contemporary art, he began to explore his artistic expression through performance, with the aim of blending calligraphy with contemporary art.
This event is kindly supported by TrAIN (The University of the Arts London Research Centre for Transnational Art, Identity and Nation) and University of the Arts London Postgraduate Community.
