This Sunday, Anja Brinkmann and I will be flying out to Paris to once again meet with our Japanese friends that I exhibited with last year in Kyoto. We have both been invited to exhibit in Paris with the IFAA.
The International Fantastic Art Association (IFAA) is an artist group dedicated to bringing together and gaining more exposure for Japanese Fantastic Artists. The group was founded by the artist Shoji Tanaka and has so far exhibited in Kyoto and Tokyo with international guest artists.
This exhibition is the first outside of Japan with guest artists from Australia, France and Germany included. The IFAA intends this to be the first of many exhibitions abroad for their group. The exhibition is right in the heart of Paris, at the Association Culturelle Franco-Japonaise de Tenri, which is only a few blocks away from the Louvre Museum.
This is my first trip to Paris, a city that has been long on my list of places to go. Anja and I are both excited about seeing our Japanese friends again. It will be also an opportunity to meet some new faces, such as French artist Hugues Gillet who exhibited with the IFAA earlier this year in Kyoto and will do so again in Paris. If we’re lucky, we should also see few other people we know visit us at the exhibition.
