Introducing Paxton’s body philosophy reinterpreting the frameworks of various physical sensation and action in a fusion of contemporary dance and art.
A leading figure in American post-modern dance, dancer/choreographer Steve Paxton is visiting Japan for the first time in 34 years. At YCAM, Steve Paxton presents a new video installation, centered around which a variety of events including demonstrations by the artist himself, and lectures with invited experts, take place as a comprehensive introduction to Paxton’s body philosophy.
Through the experience of a video installation and other events explaining Paxton’s methods and original artistic work, which keep influencing the current dance scene, this exhibition introduces Paxton’s work from the contexts of social and historical circumstances in the 1960s, and looks at the present form of the new physical and spatial qualities discovered through media-based artistic expression.

2010. 4.29.-5.30
at Gyoko-dori Underground Gallery (Tokyo Station)

The Art Award Tokyo Marunouchi (a.a.t.m.), held at the Marunouchi Gyoko-dori Underground Gallery, is an art exhibition designed to help identify and provide support to young artists. This year’s exhibition will not disappoint; like past shows, it will be full of great talent!
The a.a.t.m. features works of art and artists selected from amongst graduation projects at Japan’s art universities and graduate schools. These are displayed at the Gyoko-dori Underground Gallery, and a Grand Prize is awarded to the top piece. The judges are all professionals who lead Japan’s art scene. The 143 artists introduced over the past three years include many new artists who have since risen to prominence and are already active on a variety of fronts. Thus the goal of which is to identify and encourage new artists, is yielding steady results with each event held. Vote for the Audience Prize, which gained the positive response last year! A brand new art spot in Marunouchi, the Mitsubishi Ichigokan Museum adds to Marunouchi’s character as a hotspot for art. We hope that everyone will enjoy this competition between the young artists who are a harbinger of the future of art.
