Tokyo Correspondence

1 September 2014 - 31 March 2015


Tokyo Correspondence is a collaboration established in 2014 between Camden Arts Centre’s internationally renowned artists’ residency programme and Arts Initiative Tokyo, AIT. The project seeks to strengthen connections between artists and institutions in London and Tokyo through a series of residencies and research visits. 

From January to March, AIT hosts previous Camden Arts Centre Ceramics Fellow Jesse Wine and Artist-in-Residence Caroline Achaintre, for a two-month period of research and experimentation around ceramics. Camden Arts Centre will host Japanese artist Ryosuke Imamura later in 2015.

Camden Arts Centre Exhibition Organiser Gina Buenfeld visited Tokyo in September 2014 and returns in February to present a salon event at Shibaura House, supported by the British Council. Director of Camden Arts Centre Jenni Lomax will be on the selection panel of the Nissan Prize in the summer of 2015.

On Saturday 21 February, Caroline Achaintre, Jesse Wine and Gina Buenfeld will participate in an event at Shibaura House including works by international artists: Manon de Boer; Trisha Brown | Babette Mangolte; Jefford Horrigan; Joachim Koester; Simon Martin; Ursula Mayer; Jeremy Millar; Fernanda Muñoz Newsome and Ina Dokmo; Hiraki Sawa; Sriwhana Spong; and a live performance by Mildred Rambaud.
