Organized by Dasein Academy Creative Department, ‘Homework: Japan’ exhibition features artworks by second year illustration students from Osaka Designers’ College (ODC), where Takeshi Ishikawa, the curating lecturer provides a platform for the students to express and portray their cultural identities on Japan to the Malaysian audience. Since its founding in 1962, the Osaka Designers’ College has nurtured artists and designers in the field of illustration, comics, CG/game, graphic design, fashion design and etc. over a span of 50 years.
Since a friendly visit to Malaysia via the support from Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO) initiated by ODC, ‘Homework: Japan’ marks the first exchange project between Osaka Designers’ College and Dasein Academy as part of the initiatives to explore cross-cultural possibilities in art & creativity. The intention of the visual dialogue includes exploring creative networks, creating opportunities for academic exchange programs, & sharing the knowledge in creative market from a regional stand point.
这是一个缘自跨国创意交流衍生的学术性展览，作品来自日本的大阪设计师学院(Osaka Designers’ College)第二年插画班学生作业，由石川武志老师策展，达尔尚艺术学院(Dasein Academy of Art)创意部同人志主办，兼客串展出一系列平面设计作品，呈现一项鲜为人知的异国插画习作，而共同的展览主题就以“功课：日本”直接而平实的命名。
The exhibition will not only showcase the artworks of Japanese culture as a result of its eccentric training in commercial arts, but also featuring works by Dasein Creative Department as a display collaboration. Join us at Dasein Academy Gallery for the opening of ‘HOMEWORK: JAPAN’ on June 7, 2016. The exhibition will be on display until June 19, 2016. Admission is free where gallery opening hours are 8am – 5pm on weekdays; 8am – 1pm on Saturdays, and closed on Sundays.
