ART STUDIES: Where are masterpieces of 20th century art and artchitecture?
Series of 20 symposiums （#9 on June 30th, 2007）
"Art Studies" is a series of 20 symposiums, each of which covers 5 years of 20th century to take a survey of masterpieces in art and architecture in Japan. The very first one was held at Tamada Projects on November 11th in 2004. The series departed the site due to glowing number of participants, but the project still proceeds to complete its mission.
As a director, Taro Igarashi ran a series of lectures focusing upon renovating old architectures. Guest speakers gave lectures and panelists were to raise a discussion according to each topic at a time.
