As the third event in this series, the theme of UENOYES Balloon Days #3 is “Look. Listen. Imagine.” It will welcome two international artist groups and three Japanese artists who will all explore Ueno’s history and cultural resources from their own unique perspectives to create and present new, original works.
Masahiro Wada and Maiko Jinushi, whose remarkable work has been garnering attention in Japan over recent years, will each present their new video art that was shot in Ueno. Tsuyoshi Ozawa will roll out his new project, “Tiny House Art Center” in Yanaka. Furthermore, some more new Ueno-inspired artwork, including “Ueno Care Club” by Singapore-based artist group Post-Museum and a sound installation by Philippines-based artist Mark Salvatus will also be released at the event.
