Join us online (or in person if you are in Japan) for this unique opportunity to hear Japanese artist Yuko Mohri and Whitworth Director and curator Sook-Kyung Lee provide insights into their journey representing the Japan Pavilion at the prestigious 60th Venice Biennale, commencing on April 20, 2024.Yuko Mohri approaches installation and sculpture not to compose (or construct) but to focus on “phenomena” that constantly shift according to various conditions such as their environment. In recent years, she has also explored this idea through video and photography.

Dr Sook-Kyung Lee is the recently appointed Director of the Whitworth Art Gallery, University of Manchester, and was Senior Curator, International Art at Tate Modern.

Having previously collaborated at the 14th Gwangju Biennale, Yuko Mohri’s selection to represent the Japan Pavilion at the Venice Biennale and her subsequent nomination of Sook-Kyung Lee as the curator mark a significant milestone in their artistic partnership.

The duo’s unique perspective as representatives from East Asia and their diverse international experiences promise a compelling narrative. Gain exclusive insights into their strategic approach as the production for the 60th Venice Biennale is approaching. Discover how their cultural insights and collaborative efforts are shaping the future of the Japan Pavilion, paving the way for an unparalleled artistic destination at the world-renowned event.
