7-Day Japan Study Tour with the theme “城市與山林中的藝術”

此次考察主題為「探討日本藝術祭及文化產業的發展」,透過深入了解日本鄉郊的藝術祭及東京的博物館,反思香港文化藝術的發展。日本全國現時約有十個大型的雙年展或三年展。歐美的雙年展,旨在透過展出現代藝術發展創意城市,因此選址均集中於大城市,其中包括威尼斯。有別於歐美,日本針對社會的需要發展出獨有的藝術祭,選址集中於人口老化、交通不便、人口稀少的鄉村或小島,其中如新潟縣的越後妻有大地藝術祭及瀨戶內海的瀨戶內藝術祭最為著名。日本藝術祭透過現展出當代藝術品提升鄉郊地區的文化氣息,帶動經濟和人口流動以及振興日漸老化的農村。三年一度的越後妻有大地藝術祭始於2000年,以農田為展場,透過藝術作品,拉近人與自然的距離,藉著社區的介入,「建立一個新的令社區持續更新的模式去傳遞投入自然的理想」。自創辦以來,越後妻有大地藝術祭的概念在亞洲帶來顯著的影響,如台灣的蕭壠國際當代藝術節、中國的碧山計劃等。近年香港政府提倡公共及社區藝術發展,藝術推廣辦事署亦藉著參與2018越後妻有大地藝術祭向日本取經。另外,是次考察亦會參觀東京著名的公立和私人博物館,透過比較藝術祭和典型的藝術機構,反思藝術文化如何服務不同的群體和回應社會的需要。
