Harada and Juno Seo, director of Space O'NewWall, will discuss the current situation surrounding art in Korea and Japan amid COVID-19 pandemic, as well as future prospects and plans.
At the same time with the talk session, two children - sons of the two gallery directors - will play the game of Othello using Zoom. Then the artist Kurihara creates an Othello-painting in her studio based on the progress of the game played between the two kids.
One new piece of "artwork" will be created as a result of this multi-layered, "remote" collaboration, examining the current situation and looking ahead into the future after COVID-19, while imagining the shape of the next generation international friendship.
Talk session and live-painting performance will be broadcast online via Facebook Live on HRD Fine Art's page.
