Concept of MA Event

$5 – $10

 

 

Fee: $5 JASC/Japanese Culture Center Members & $10 Non-Members   

 

About the Event:   

Have you ever thought about why traditional Japanese paintings use background differently compared to Western paintings? Or, why the traditional performance art looks slow and not so dramatic? 

 

The concept of MA, the space between structural parts and/or interval, is related to the Japanese ideas of Zen and the way of tea. It has been influencing various art forms in Japan for thousands of years, including visual and performance arts, as well as architecture. By looking at artworks of Japanese traditional paintings, calligraphies, architectures and video footage of performance arts, Mami Takahashi will illustrate visual examples of the concept of MA, and present a way of Japanese traditional perspective to see the arts. 

About the Speaker:   

Takahashi received her MFA in Contemporary Studio Practice from Portland State University (Portland, OR) in 2013. She earned a BFA in Japanese Painting from Joshibi University of Art and Design (Japan), where she was awarded a prize for her thesis work. Takahashi also obtained an Associate of Fine Art in Aesthetics from Aoyama-gakuin Women’s College (Tokyo, Japan). She has been a research scholar at various places, including the University of Oregon, focusing on the conceptual understanding of Japanese aesthetics. Her artwork also has been collected and exhibited internationally at the following art establishments: Toriizaka Art in Japan; Gwangju Fork Art Museum in South Korea; Southern Alberta Art Gallery in Canada; International Museum Texas; 510 Museum&ArtSpace in Oregon.
