More than 100 works by young artists - students of Japanese and Russian art universities will be shown in the framework of a large-scale complex project "Takeda. Pain and Will ", the main goal of which is to promote the development of palliative care and new technologies in medicine.
Andrey Potapov, CEO of Takeda Russia, head of the CIS region, said on the eve of the project: "2018 is a significant year for our company. This is the year of cultural exchange between Russia and Japan. Also this year the company celebrates 25 years of work in the Russian pharmaceutical market. We are glad that this year our project "Takeda. Pain and Freedom "takes on an international scale. Speaking as organizer of the international exhibitions "Overcoming", devoted to the importance of the development of palliative care and new technologies in medicine, we tried to show how this issue is relevant for our countries. I sincerely hope that the exhibitions in Moscow and St. Petersburg will attract the attention of the general public, and with the help of the emotional language of art we will contribute to the development of a socially responsible society. "
Takeda, headquartered in Moscow, is a member of Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Limited, Osaka, Japan. The company has been present on the Russian market for 25 years and is one of the TOP-10 leading companies of the Russian pharmaceutical market. To date, Takeda operates in 135 cities of Russia and the CIS, and in 2013 launched commercial production at its plant in Yaroslavl. In addition to the main activities, the company is actively developing social projects and in 2016 launched the project "Takeda. Pain and Freedom "in support of the development of palliative care and new technologies in medicine, within the framework of which the exhibition" Overcoming "takes place.
The Moscow exposition of the exhibition included about 70 Japanese projects presented by the students of the two largest universities - the Musashino Art University and the Tama Art University. Works of painting, graphics and calligraphy, video art and installation of Japanese artists will occupy two halls of the New Manege.
In a separate section are collected works created by students of the St. Petersburg State Academic Institute of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture. I.E. Repin. According to the organizers, most of the picturesque and graphic works will be exhibited on the studio easels. The atmosphere of real training workshops, recreated in the halls of the "New Manezh", recalls that the exhibition involves a new generation of artists.
Part of the Russian section will be the works of three winners of the second creative contest among students of Russian universities and art schools "Takeda. ART / HELP. Overcoming ». In 2017, more than 200 applications from students of creative universities from 58 Russian cities were submitted for the competition. The exposition includes works by Alexandra Bobkova, students of the Sverdlovsk Art School named after ID Shadra, Arina Chetina, a student of the architectural faculty of the Voronezh State Technical University and Daniil Troyanov, a student at the Faculty of Arts of the Baltic Institute of Ecology, Politics and Law in St. Petersburg.
"Thanks to the exhibitions organized with the support of Takeda, we get an opportunity to evaluate not only the artist’s talent, but also his social sensitivity," said the project’s curator, Semyon Mikhailovsky. - I think it is very important for the artist, to show his attitude to life, to be able to show the ability to emotional experience, social responsibility. The exhibition in the "New Manezh" in Moscow will open prospects for young artists from Russia and Japan. A separate section of the exhibition will be the works of Keito Yamaguchi - a Japanese artist, a student of the Academy of Arts in St. Petersburg. At our exhibition, she will be a key figure uniting two different civilizations. "
According to Semyon Mikhailovsky, the most important stage in the development of the project was the joint work with Japanese colleagues and the opportunity to select items, directly communicating with their authors - students of the two largest art universities in Japan.
University of Arts Musashino (MAU), located in Tokyo, was founded in 1929 as a private school, which in 1962 officially acquired the status of a university. Now MAU is the largest art institute in Japan, where more than 4,500 full-time students study. About 2,000 students receive correspondence education. The detailed structure of the university with faculties of painting, printed graphics, traditional Japanese painting, sculpture, architecture, fashion and all possible design directions makes it possible to get education in different areas of the profession. The MAU leadership actively supports the university’s international relations.
"The exhibition project" Overcoming ", taking place in the cross-cultural year of Russia and Japan - is an excellent opportunity for young Russian and Japanese artists to demonstrate their achievements. We are deeply grateful to Takeda for its support and we hope that this project will demonstrate the possibility of cooperation between the youth of Russia and Japan and will become the basis of future relations, "said Professor Tadanori Nagasawa, President of Musashino University of Arts
The motto of the Tama University of Art: "Freedom and Freedom" fully reflects the dialectic of the creative process. Founded in 1935 in Tokyo, Tama’s private university specializes in fine arts, design, multimedia and scenography and is considered one of the country’s most prestigious art institutions.
"We would like to express our deep gratitude to the pharmaceutical company Takeda and the rector of the St. Petersburg State Academic Institute of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture named after IE Repin at the Russian Academy of Arts, Semyon Mikhailovsky, and his colleagues for the opportunity to present the work of our students in Russia. We are sure that their participation in the project will become a kind of bridge between Russia and Japan, "said Mr. Akira Tatehata, president of the University of Art Tama.
