Art Project

Art is a microcosm which traverses a broad scope of academic studies. Artists are seekers to reveal its multifaceted meaning through their  artworks.

Conversation with Ruskin

A Celebration for the Bicentenary of John Ruskin's Birth

2019 is the 200th anniversary of John Ruskin’s birth. An artist, art critique, writer, social thinker, the Oxford professor founded the Ruskin School of Art, Ruskin was known as the first critique to find Turner’s innovative painting style and established his name, led the Gothic Revival, provided the ideological foundation for the Pre-Raphaelites and the Arts and Crafts Movement. He was one of the most influential figures in Victorian England. For celebrating his legacy, I’ll organize my touring solo art project "Conversation with Ruskin" at the Brantwood in Coniston, where Ruskin chose to live in his later years, and The Ruskin in Lancaster University, the academic centre of Ruskin. This project is supported by Arts Council England.

2019年はジョン・ラスキン生誕200周年の年。美術家、美術評論家、文筆家、思想家、オックスフォード大学教授を兼任、同大学のラスキン・スクール・オブ・アートを発足、ターナーの斬新な画風を最初に評価して画家の名声を不動のものとし、ゴシック・リバイバルを牽引し、ラファエル前派やアーツ&クラフツ運動の思想的基盤となった、英国ヴィクトリア朝時代の巨人。その偉業を讃えて、ラスキンが晩年、終生の住まいとしたブラントウッド(コニストン)、次いでランカスター大学のラスキン研究の殿堂The Ruskinにて巡回展 "Conversation with Ruskin" を開催。なお、本プロジェクトは英国芸術協議会(Arts Council England)より助成を受けて実現した。
