Ken Kagami: Sexy Art School

Where: Level G, Theatrette

In Sexy Art School Japanese artist Ken Kagami subverts the traditional artist talk / lecture by inviting the audience to collaborate in considering the naughty possibilities inherent in seemingly innocuous language and imagery.

Kagami approaches art via the practice of ‘Concrete Comedy’. Inspired by both the environs of Tokyo as well as the work of Milwaukee-based artist David Robbins, Kagami takes the joke as his medium of choice, making mischievous use of everyday found objects, art historical references, contemporary display practices, Japanese popular culture and news media as his materials, all informed by his keen eye for design.
