English Information
You will see the freshness of vision from the City of Yokohama where now blend right in with plush modernization.

The city of Yokohama has always been forward-thinking and positioned to embrace the future, both geographically and mentally. Beginning with a shogun mandate responding to commodore Perry in the mid 1800s, this tiny fishing village was quickly transformed into a major portal of international trade, and currently show cases its model of modern urban development, Minato Mirai 21, with a conference center, museums, hotels, cinemas, restaurants, and an amusement park. The city of Yokohama was a major exporter of raw silk and currently is the home of Japan’s largest China town. It claims the first bakery, photo studio, telephone, beer brewery, cinema, daily newspaper, public restrooms, gas lanterns, dry cleaners, tennis club, ice cream, and was the site of Japan’s first movie shoot.

Easily and quickly accessible from Tokyo, Yokohama has been the home of the renown international exhibition, ‘Yokohama 2008: Triennale of Contemporary Art’’, in 2001 and 2005, organized by prominent Japanese curators that included prominent artists and attracted a global audience.

“Under the Influence” is an exhibition that simultaneously addresses Yokohama’s commitment to preserving its historic past while foregrounding its current prominence. The title reflects the pervasive influence of Yokohama as a major force in art and commerce, and is an open concept with an edge, inviting creative freedom from the international list of guest artists, in conversation with the invited Japanese artists. This exhibition is sponsored by ZAIM (Yokohama Arts Foundation), curated by an American guest curator Dr.Koan Jeff Baysa from New York and is planned by Hatch Art from Art Scene from Los Angeles.
