Organized to mark the fifth year of the London/Tokyo Y-AIR Exchange Programme (LTYE) since its launch in 2015, the Ai mi Tagai exhibition and forum will present the work of artists who were previous participants, in addition to the work of professors who are acting advisors for the program. Ai mi Tagai will be held in Tokyo in 2019, and in London in 2020.
 

Implemented as a collaboration between Central Saint Martins (CSM) and the Associate Studio Programme in London (created and managed in partnership with Acme Studios), and Tokyo University of the Arts and Youkobo Art Space in Tokyo, LTYE is an ongoing artist-in-residence (AIR) programme that aims to provide young artists who have recently graduated from art university with opportunities to stay, produce and exhibit overseas, while also encouraging international exchange among artists of the same generation. 


Ai mi Tagai, meaning “mutual empathy” (namely to understand the situation of another in similar circumstances and offer mutual support) , was chosen as the title of this exhibition as it encapsulates the particular characteristic of the LTYE Programme, while also signifying what we the organizers consider to be the meaning of international exchange. 

 
 


Forum "Creating an environment for artists after graduation from art university—Considering the concept of Y-AIR and its implementation"

7.20 Sat. 15:00-18:00 at Lecture room 6, Central Bldg., Faculty of Fine Arts, Tokyo University of the Arts

Y-AIR is an abbreviation of "AIR for Young." It is a program realized through collaboration between AIR and art universities offering young artists opportunities and experiences of carrying out creative activities on artist-in-residence programs, contributing to their development as artists, as members of society, and as ordinary citizens. Through cooperation between individual AIR and art universities, Y-AIR aims to grow into a program for international exchange through the construction of a sustainable framework.
