A rising in the east

11 February – 20 April, 2024

Presented by Perth Festival in association with Tanpopo-no-ye Arts Centre HANA (Nara), New Traditional Project, Good Job! Centre (Kashiba), Atelier Yamanami (Shiga Prefecture) and DADAA

A rising in the east brings new perspectives and ways of working that challenge what and who we value, asking us to reconsider the clock-in, clock-out measure of human contribution.

Imagine a society where artists are deeply valued for their innate uniqueness and supported for life. Where artistic labour is valued and arts and disability practices move against the industrialisation of time. Where arts and disability is framed by new traditions, traditional crafts, community arts, digital fabrication and arts and health. Where co-design and collaboration between artists with disabilities sit at the core. A place where a disability perspective brings new meaning and ways of making to long held traditional craft practices and materials.

Four Japanese arts and disability organisations reframe our understanding of disability arts and disability culture. Intercultural dialogue and exchange are at the heart of A rising in the east. From the kitsch to new ways of working and age-old long practiced traditions, this exhibition presents an immersive survey of textiles, works on paper, books and illustrations that illuminate artists’ practice in time and over time.
