Columbia University’s School of the Arts Visual Arts professor Rirkrit Tiravanija, along with 2015 Mellon Visiting Artist Joan Jonas ('65) and alumna Rachel Rose ('13), are participating in Japan’s first Okayama Art Summit.

Okayama Art Summit 2016 is the first of a new triennial art exhibition to be held in Okayama, Japan. This year the summit features 31 contemporary artists and showcases the artist Liam Gillick as its first ever artistic director. The theme for 2016 is Development which relates to  notions of cinematic, capitalistic and strategic pre and post production.

Development will take place October 9 – November 27, 2016 in multiple venues.

The press release reads, “All the artists involved in the exhibition play with structures - ideological, formal and political. They do this in very specific ways. Each artist layers their work upon what they encounter. They offer various levels of distance to the given structure. And leave us with different strata for encounter, examination and experience.”
