Sound/Art – Tuning in to Africa

Morocco-based Megumi Matsubara and Angolan-born Nástio Mosquito, two artists who constantly defy stereotypes, will delve into the essence of what culture is, and what it means to meet someone else. The fleeting, illusory sounds and lights that they have conjured will turn the first floor of the YCC into a space where encounters both simple and complex will unfold.

TICAD V, the fifth international conference will be held between 1st-3rd of June 2013 in Yokohama, Japan. It is expected to draw a big general interest on Africa. In May 2013, Yokohama Arts Foundation organizes a related pre-event, “Sound/Art – Tuning in to Africa” aiming to approach mutual understanding through the power of contemporary art and music, with exhibition, talk events and live performances.
