Encounters in the Twenty-First Century Polyphony

Encounters in the Twenty-First Century Polyphony Emerging Resonances
Edited by Yukata Mino

“Connecting to survive, singing in a multiplicity of voices to survive.”

This collection of essays was brought together for the opening of the 21st Century Museum of contemporary art in Kanazawa, Japan. Topics covered in the essays include the role of architecture in art galleries in relation to viewers interacting and participating with the exhibitions, how the individual defines one self through group relationships, the need for public and communal space and how that is increasingly becoming evident through contemporary art by artists such as Rikrit Tiravanija.
