Masami Shiraishi, curator


For Art Fair Tokyo 2015, I interviewed the event's chairman, Masami Shiraishi. The interview was carried out by email a couple of weeks before AFT, with questions translated into Japanese and answers translated into English. The accompanying pictures are random shots I took when I visited the event.

Antenna, artists


In early 2011, I was preparing an article on Roppongi Art Night. This was later cancelled because the Great Eastern Japan Earthquake struck shortly before the event was scheduled to be held. In preparation for the article, I did a short email interview in Japanese with Antenna, a team of two Kyoto-based artists who use a character called Jappy as a motif in most of their work.
