“Granby Workshop : The Rules of Production Art Changes the Everyday—Shinzo Fukuhara’s Aesthetics Shinzo Fukuhara/ASSEMBLE, THE EUGENE Studio Ⅱ”
The Shiseido Gallery is pleased to announce the second installment of exhibition “Going Beyond and Participating in Beauty: Shinzo Fukuhara’s Aesthetics Shinzo Fukuhara/ASSEMBLE, THE EUGENE Studio,” which has been on display since Friday, October 19, 2018. The second exhibition, titled “Granby Workshop: The Rules of Production, Art Changes the Everyday—Shinzo Fukuhara’s Aesthetics Shinzo Fukuhara/ASSEMBLE, THE EUGENE Studio II,” will be held from Wednesday, January 16 to Sunday, March 17, 2019 with the theme of Art Changes the Everyday.
In the first exhibition, through the participation of THE EUGENE Studio, we created a gallery space or platform featuring Shinzo Fukuhara, the first president of Shiseido, who went beyond the boundaries of business leader and photographer to proactively involve himself in social creation activities and to enable contemporary audiences to share encounters and various new values on which he put emphasis. Meanwhile, in the second exhibition, members of ASSEMBLE, a U.K.-based architect collective that engages in contemporary social creation activities and new modes in the fields of art, design, and architecture, will showcase its Granby Workshop*, which is operated in cooperation with local residents of Liverpool, here in Japan at the Shiseido Gallery.
Shinzo Fukuhara led Shiseido by placing value on art and design, aiming to make the entire product creation process uniformly beautiful all the way until delivery to and use by customers. At the same time, he tried to communicate how people incorporate beauty into their everyday lives through art by popularizing photography, which was still a burgeoning artistic medium. By participating in this exhibition, ASSEMBLE expresses its empathy with Fukuhara’s aesthetic philosophy of pursuing beauty and creativity in society and daily life, upholding the theme of Art Changes the Everyday.
