Australia-Japan Society of NSW
Courtesy of the Art Gallery of NSW, AJS-NSW is extending an invitation to an exclusive event for a presentation about the Sydney Modern Project - where the architectural design competition was won by Japanese firm SANAA - and also a guided tour of the Tsukioka Yoshitoshi print exhibition.
The Sydney Modern Project is an ambitious project to extend the Art Gallery of NSW. An international design competition was conducted, culminating in the award to Kazuyo Sejima + Ryue Nishizawa of the Tokyo-based SANAA architectural firm, earlier this year. SANAA is renowned for its architecturally ambitious, nature-inspired buildings and SANAA's design takes into account the significant challenges of the site.
The new extension is planned to be completed in 2021 for the Art Gallery's 150th anniversary.
At the same time, we will have the chance for a special guided tour (including in Japanese on request) of the One hundred aspects of the moon by Tsukioka Yoshitoshi exhibition. The prints exhibited come from the Art Gallery's own collection and are recognized as precursors to today's anime and manga.
A reception with drinks and canapes and the chance to discuss the project and the exhibition follows the presentation.
Registrations are now open, online or use the form. Please note - due to catering at the Gallery we do require early sign-up for this event.
The Australia-Japan Society of NSW Incorporated (AJS-NSW) aims to bring together Australian and Japanese people living in NSW to explore mutual interests.
AJS-NSW holds regular business, social and cultural functions, and publishes a quarterly newsletter, Tomodachi.
