Event description

Description

1Future & Artrepeneurship × The Vanderbilt Republic invite you to experience On Another Ground Zero: “Hiroshima” — a sprawling curatorial immersion, performance art series, facilitated knowledge/awareness exchange, and pop-up 茶室 (chashitsu, “tea room”).


Cannon Hersey & Taku Nishimae (directors, 1Future), Alexis & Franklyn Mena (founders, Artrepeneurship) and George Del Barrio (creative director × executive producer, The Vanderbilt Republic) will lead an international cohort of artists and NPOs to weave this tapestry of resilience & hope.


This multifaceted encounter with the lasting consequences of atomic warfare happens 29 April–12 May 2019 at The Bellewether (222 East 46th Street 10017), an 8,000ft2 project space in Midtown Manhattan dedicated to site-responsive installation/performance immersions and photo/film production.


This gathering and forum on the necessity of continued social innovation is designed to engage NYC (inclusive of urban professionals, young people, artists, students, educators & business/policy leaders) with the interconnected global concerns of our times through the emotional flashpoint that is the August 1945 catastrophe in Hiroshima, Japan.


Participating visual/installation artists include Kenichi Asano, Peter Bill + Junchen Huang, Patrick Dougher, Akira Fujimoto, Cannon Hersey, Yugen Hirofumi, Mari Ishiko and Alexis Mena; performance artists include Junko Ichikawa, Kazuya Kato, Jill B-lovin + Scott Zoid, with more to come. Group & dyadic workshops facilitated by Alexis Mena & Taku Nishimae will foster dialogues to offer toolkits for positive change; the pop-up chashitsu will operate daily as a site-specific pop-up at the ClearLight Café with operations by Brooklyn’s own Cassandre Davilmar (founder, Lakou café) and Mari Ishiko, (founder of Hiroshima’s legendary art space & café Gallery Intersection 611).


Curation & lighting/projection design for this suite of interconnected experiences is by George Del Barrio.
