A  conversation between Noritoshi Hirakawa, Lawrence Weiner and Sumie Maeda will focus on issues surrounding the role of art in making the world a better place to live. They will share their beliefs about how we as individuals can collectively create a new artistic foundation that will inspire a revival of the life-enhancing dynamism of consciousness.

 

The event is also designed to fall upon Hiroshima Memorial Day, which was created to console the victims of the atomic bombs and to pray for the realization of lasting world peace.

 

TODAY IS THE DAY is a visionary foundation based in Hiroshima, Japan as well as New York. Through a variety of artistic activities, it strives to instigate a new system of personal and collective thoughts and actions, which will gradually counteract phenomena that are harmful to the current quality of life on earth. Its members include: Chris Dercon, Udo Kittelmann, Aelina von Furstenberg, David A. Ross, William Forsythe, Lawrence Weiner, Marina Abramovic, and Yoshitomo Nara.
