The Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation – Supporting closer links between the UK and Japan
Exhibition: 15 Apr 2016 – 27 May 2016
Taisuke Koyama’s exhibition, Generated Images, thematises the possibilities of photographic expression in the post-digital era. He aims to provide a space for audiences to experience ‘environmentalised’ images in the form of the tangible objects and data created by digital devices. When photographs are shared and data edited with unprecedented scale and freedom, how can an image actually be created? In his first solo show in London, Koyama tries to explore the potential of photographic media through ‘indeterminacy’ and the replication of images.
Book launch: 3 May 2016
Bridges: Anglo-Japanese Cultural Pioneers 1945-2015 celebrates the work of a diverse range of people who have made a significant contribution to the understanding of Japan in the UK. The contributors are all UK-based professionals and work in a wide range of areas including academic, diplomatic, creative media, business and humanitarian work. Their wealth of experience provides a deep insight into the development of Anglo-Japanese relations from the beginning of the Post War period to the present day.
