TrAIN Open Lecture | Motohiro Koizumi | Collaborative Art Projects
Collaborative Art Projects in Japanese International Art Exhibitions and its Social Implications
This lecture investigates how the expansion of these ‘collaborative’ art projects throughout regional communities should be perceived under the diversity of ‘community’ in the context of the trends of globalization. Specifically, on the basis of field research, Koizumi attempts to examine ‘collaborative’ art projects in terms of their significance and issues they present in urban and regional communities.
Koizumi is an associate professor in Cultural Policy and Management at National Tottori University (2011-), a CLIC fellow at Osaka University (2011-), and also, actively engaging in teaching courses for Arts Management and Cultural Industries at International Christian University (2012-).

TrAIN Member - Reader
I was born in Tokyo and trained in Japan, the USA and UK. My on-going interest in cross-cultural dimensions of arts started with the UK-Japan cultural relations that produced an international travelling exhibition and book Ruskin in Japan 1890-1940: Nature for Art, Art for Life (1997), followed by my PhD work on the Japanese folkcrafts (Mingei) movement which led to the subsequent publication of Japanese Modernisation and Mingei Theory: Cultural Nationalism and Oriental Orientalism (2004).
