"Ways of Worldmaking"

THE NATIONAL MUSEUM OF ART, OSAKA


By TOMOKO HORI

This exhibition takes its title from American philosopher Nelson Goodman's book, "Ways of Worldmaking." Goodman argued that there is no "actual world" and that instead people make different versions of the world.

In this exhibition of up-and-coming Japanese artists, six individuals and three collectives present their versions of the world.

Ryota Kuwakubo uses a model train and household objects to create an interactive installation, while Zon Ito and Ryoko Aoki take two unconventional forms of artists' media — embroidery and scribbling, respectively — to create a collaborative piece.

Other exhibitors include Paramodel, Exonemo, Junko Kido, Kengo Kito, Teppei Kaneuji, Yasuaki Onishi and Masanori Handa; till Dec. 11.
