So pleased to have taken this seminar. If you love contemporary art, Naoshima and the other islands in the Seto Sea need to be on your next visit to Japan..
I really got the sense of arriving at Naoshima and looking around at the various installations on the island and its neighbouring islands. Definitely whetted my appetite to explore the Seto Inland Sea area more, and to visit these islands. Also glad he included some other places in Japan where contemporary art is exhibited. The Kanazawa museum and the Kusama museum in Tokyo were already on my list, so it was nice to get an endorsement from the speaker.
This was a lovely overview of contemporary art and museums on Naoshima and throughout Japan. Simon did a beautiful job of focusing in on some key examples of holdings at each collection covered, both illustrating and explaining the works in detail. Thank you Simon!
Really good, comprehensive look at Naoshima and the surrounding art islands. the speaker was very well informed (as one would expect from a guide book writer) and - crucially - able to communicate the information in an excellent and enjoyable manner. Recommended!
