The Japan Foundation will hold the online exhibition "11 Stories on Distanced Relationships: Contemporary Art from Japan" for a limited time from March 30 to May 5, with the aim of promoting new artistic exchanges in this time of coexistence with COVID-19. 

The theme of the exhibition is "Translating Distance." The spread of COVID-19 has brought restrictions to our lives that are forcing us to be conscious of "distance." Communication had only been speeding up, and now a major turning point has arrived in the way we communicate.

People are beginning to explore and build new relationships based on the assumption that they are separated. Instead of thinking of distance in purely physical terms, what sorts of words can we replace those distances with, or translate them into, so that we can understand distance, including the positive aspects it gives rise to? 

Via the bilingual website (Japanese/English), this exhibition presents for viewers across the world works that have been created around various kinds of "distances," including distances between people, between land and people, between historical points in time and the present, and between physical places and virtual spaces.

The 11 participating artists are ARAKI Yu, HAN Ishu, IIYAMA Yuki, KOIZUMI Meiro, MOHRI Yuko, NOGUCHI Rika, OKUMURA Yuki, SATO Masaharu, SAWA Hiraki, YANAI Shino, and YOSHIDA Shinya. The exhibition rethinks "distance" in various media, including video, sound, animation, and live streaming*.

*An artwork by MOHRI Yuko is livestreamed from 9:00 to 18:00 (JST) every day during the exhibition period.
