NEIGHBOR’S LAND”, an art project and exhibition by a young emerging artist, Jun Kitazawa will be held at YCC Yokohama CreativeCity Center (YCC) from April 27 to June 10, 2018.

This art exhibition will be the 5th time of “YCC Temporary”, the YCC’s original art program that focuses on “Contemporary” and consists from art exhibition, performance and researching project, etc. Jun Kitazawa has kept making unique art projects with his consistent theme “Community Specific” not only in Japan but also foreign countries. He was listed on the Forbes magazine “30 Under 30 Asia – The Arts” in 2016.

This art project and exhibition by Jun Kitazawa focuses on various “foreign nationals” who live right next to Japanese people as true “Neighbors” in same Yokohama. Although we live in the same city, Yokohama, there is no many chances to know about neighbor’s country, culture and custom.

In this exhibition, “NEIGHBOR’S LAND” is created by diverse neighbor’s country background and culture at YCC’s exhibition space. “NEIGHBOR’S LAND”, which looks like somewhere’s “Town” not like town in Japan but actually located in Japan, consists from various foreign national’s activity, people, cultural things and daily goods. “NEIGHBOR’S LAND” is going to be where you can meet diverse foreign nationals and also you can find out foreign country’s culture, sense of values, traditional customs and daily life. Through a research by the artist himself and meetings and discussions with foreign nationals living in Yokohama, “NEIGHBOR’S LAND” is created by collaboration with foreign nationals and the artist.

Please take this rare opportunity to meet various foreign nationals and their diverse culture in the “NEIGHBOR’S LAND” that doesn’t exist any other places except YCC.
