The Scottsboro Boys - A false accident arrested 9 African American teenagers, ages 13 to 20 in Alabama of raping two White American women on a train in 1931. It made public opinion as an incident reflecting the problem of racial discrimination in America. Hideo NODA also known as Hideo Benjamin NODA criticized American society pessimistically, with repeated African American teenagers in his own circumstances that was subject to persecution and exclusion as a Japanese-American artist.

This work titled `The Scottsboro Boys’ will be exhibited for the exhibition of Mexican Muralism and Art in the United States, 1920-1950 at Whitney Museum of American Art (New York) in 2020.

In the economic crisis of the 1930s, Hideo NODA developed his painting style of looking gently over his kindness, focusing on people’s emotions living in cities in the United States.

In 1933, he joined with Ben Shahn, Jackson Pollock and others as assistant of Diego Rivera who made mural of the Rockefeller Center. He ran through a short lifetime of 30 years. In this exhibition, 27 works mainly drawings will be exhibited. We do hope you will be able to have a look.



Hideo NODA / born in Santa Clara, California, 1908. In 1911, he was left at uncle’s house in Kumamoto where his parents originally from. In 1926, after graduating from Kumamoto prefectural junior high school, he travelled alone to the United States. In 1929, attended the California School of Fine Arts. He met Diego Rivera and moved to Woodstock Art Village (New York) in 1931. His painting `Street Scene' was purchased by Whitney Museum of American Art in 1934. In 1937, he traveled to Paris, Rome and other cities, after that returned to Japan. 1938, he moved to Genichiro INOKUMA’s absence house in Denenchofu, Tokyo. He was sick and hospitalized while staying on the shore of Nojiri Lake in Nagano prefecture. A brain tumor ended his life on Jan. 12, 1939 at the age of 30 in Tokyo.

Great locations of beautiful ocean view and Kobe’s street sights, it will be an easy-going event like that many guests join. We look forward to seeing you all at the Kobe Art Marché.

Mizoe Art Gallery/Room 1326, we are going to present three great artists Kenpei YUNDE, Satoru JOGASAKI and Takeshi WEI who are well received in past few years.
Firstly, Kenpei YUNDE believes that all the motifs are present on the "soil". He has been repeatedly putting and shaving oil on canvas to make matières over a year.We feel the deep beauty from the simple motif on the thick matières of his painting. In contrast, all his drawings express his respiration and realistic feelings with the improvisational sense of speed.
Next artist is Takeshi WEI. His works come from imaginary world. Painting melancholy figures and making playful objects with familiar waste materials such as drift woods. He produces a one-piece print by own method and a variety of works.
The last one is Satoru JOGASAKI.He makes humorous and emotional arts from casual moments. Innocent shaping Matières felt rough like sand but that is warm and close to our mind like a piece of road movie.

Please enjoy KOBE ART MARCHÉ 2018 to meet brilliant works.

Fee: 1,000 yen (Multi-Day Passport)
* If there is a purchase of merchandise over 5000 yen at the event; there will be a 1000 yen deduction available.

[Fukuoka] Kenpei YUNDE Exhibition –Happiness on the Soil– September 8 (Sat) ― 24 (Mon), 2018

 

 

September 8(Sat) ― September 24 (Mon), 2018
Hours: 10am – 7pm (open every day during the exhibition)
●The artist is around Sep.15 - 17 in gallery.

Humans are considering things and creating things. For example, making and using vessels, cultivating soil, growing flowers and decorating them, believing in the existence of God. I think that they are all human activities to be happy in order to live on the earth.
I still believe that all the motifs are present on the “soil”. No matter what I paint: plants, water, air or dishes, I do not feel right unless I begin the process of paint starting from the “soil”.
For the series of painting of the Japanese Constitutions which became the turning point of my career as an artist, I deeply considering what would be human’s happiness.
I constantly ask by myself what would be human activities from a fundamental perspective in order to draw the painting.
Kenpei Yunde

The movie "Kazokuwari" will be shown at Yurakucho Subaruza in January 2019.
