○ Joint Symposium of the East and West Division Museum Committees
“Beyond Boundaries: For the Curators of the Future”

Date: 16 April 2016 (Sat.), 10:30 – 16:30 (doors open at 10:00)
Location: Lecture Hall, National Museum of Art, Osaka
Access: For directions see:
Organizer: JAHS and the National Museum of Art, Osaka
With the support of:
  the Japanese Council of Art Museums, Japan Association for Arts Management and the Association for the Study of Cultural Resources
Symposium Overview:
   Amidst the challenging environment confronting museums today, we must focus on the activities of curators. They will need to see new possibilities, overcome many constraints and difficulties. We will investigate their role and the issues they face as we look towards the future form of museums.
 The situation confronting museums includes harsh economic realities along with the diverse needs of the local population, and the limitations of the existing methodologies for museum operations. In these circumstances we must discover and make connections beyond existing frameworks and viewpoints.
 This symposium focuses on the individuals and institutions that can expand the potential of museums and work amidst various restrictions, as they permeate local society and adapt to a more flexible network. The presentations will explore both the potential and issues facing museums today, such as Kusumoto (Tsunagi Art Museum) and Kushino on continuing activities that link with local society and take a unique vantage point in spite of being small-scale museums hampered by inadequate budgets or staff numbers; Inaniwa (Tokyo Metropolitan Museum) on creating a new image of museums through active educational outreach and linking with regional museums; Kudô (Aomori Museum of Art) on searching for new links between regional public art museums, and Yamauchi (Rias Ark Museum of Art) on showing a museum’s commitment to regional society through the display of how disaster effects are an important element of regional culture.

○ General Meeting of the Western Division of the Japan Art History Society
Chair: IKEDA Yûko
Title: “Textiles and Art: Their Borderless Potential”
Date/time: February 6, 2016 (Sat.) 13:30 – 17:00 (venue opens at 13:00)
Location: First Floor Lecture Hall, National Museum of Modern Art, Kyoto
Limited to: 100 participants (first come, first in, no prior reservations taken) *Please exchange symposium announcement postcard for a complementary entrance ticket at the 1st Floor Information Desk (valid only on the day of the symposium)
Program Summary: Textiles are one of the essential “objects” in human life. People have always protected themselves and their daily lives through the acts of spinning, weaving and dyeing. In Europe there has been a recent succession of openings of new museums dedicated to textiles and re-designed displays, with various exhibitions featuring textiles as their central theme. These exhibitions have gone beyond the usual simple introduction of textiles as “objects”, providing stimulating experiments in evoking a higher social position for the medium by displaying textiles alongside other forms of art works and historical materials and indicating how closely linked the principles of textile creation are to the creation of art works in general. This symposium will consider the current state of textile exhibitions in Japan and their related issues and how they can be improved in the future. Through the panelists’ reports, let’s consider how to present textiles, and indeed decorative arts in general, from all the more appealing vantage points.
