Is Tohoku-ga possible?
Natsunosuke Mise and Masatake Kozaki started this project at Tohoku University of Art & Design in November 2009 as
a tutorial activity to ponder art in Tohoku. The group consists of faculty members, current and former students, and likeminded
artists from Tohoku University of Art & Design. Based in Yamagata, the group has conducted fieldwork in
Fukushima and Aomori, exhibited works not only in Tohoku but also in Tokyo, Kyoto, and beyond, exploring various
natures of Tohoku through discussions, productions, and exhibitions with members from all over Japan. The first book
of art from the project is scheduled to be released from Bijutsu Shuppansha in July.
