On March 30, 2018, the International Overcoming exhibition will open at the New Manege exhibition hall in Moscow. More than 100 works of young artists - students of Japanese and Russian art universities will be shown as part of the large-scale integrated project “Takeda. Pain and Will ”, the main purpose of which is to promote the development of palliative care and new technologies in medicine.
Andrei Potapov, CEO of Takeda Russia, head of the CIS region, said ahead of the start of the project: “2018 is a significant year for our company. This is a year of cultural exchange between Russia and Japan. Also this year, the company celebrates 25 years of work in the pharmaceutical market of Russia. We are pleased that this year our project “Takeda. Pain and will ”is gaining international scope. Acting as the organizer of the international Overcoming exhibitions devoted to the issue of the importance of the development of palliative care and new technologies in medicine, we sought to show how relevant this issue is to our countries. “I sincerely hope that the exhibitions in Moscow and St. Petersburg will attract the attention of the general public, and with the help of the emotional language of art, we will contribute to the development of a socially responsible society.”
Takeda, headquartered in Moscow, is part of Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Limited, Osaka, Japan. The company has been present on the Russian market for 25 years and is in the TOP-10 of the leading companies in the Russian pharmaceutical market. Today, Takeda operates in 135 cities of Russia and the CIS, and in 2013 launched commercial production at its plant in Yaroslavl. In addition to the main activity, the company is actively developing social projects and in 2016 launched the project “Takeda. Pain and Will ”in support of the development of palliative care and new technologies in medicine, in the framework of which the Overcoming exhibition is held.
The Moscow exposition of the exhibition included about 70 Japanese projects presented by students of two major universities - Musashino Art University and Tama Art University. Works of painting, graphics and calligraphy, video art and installations of Japanese artists will occupy two halls of the New Manege.
In a separate section contains works created by students of the St. Petersburg State Academic Institute of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture. I.E. Repin. According to the organizers, most of the paintings and graphic works will be exhibited at studio easels. The atmosphere of real training workshops, recreated in the halls of the New Manege, reminds us that a new generation of artists is taking part in the exhibition.
Part of the Russian section will be the works of three winners of the second creative competition among students of Russian universities and art schools “Takeda. ART / HELP. Overcoming. " In 2017, more than 200 applications from creative universities from 58 Russian cities were submitted to the competition. The exhibition includes the works of Alexandra Bobkova, a student of the Sverdlovsk Art School named after I. D. Shadr, Arina Chetina, a student of the Faculty of Architecture of Voronezh State Technical University and Daniil Troyanov, a student of the Faculty of Arts of the Baltic Institute of Ecology, Politics and Law in St. Petersburg.
“Thanks to the exhibitions organized with the support of the Takeda company, we get the opportunity to evaluate not only the artist’s talent, but also his social sensitivity,” emphasized the project’s curator, Semyon Mikhailovsky. - I think it is very important for the artist to show his attitude to life, to be able to show the ability to emotional experience, social responsibility. The exhibition at the New Manege in Moscow will open up prospects for young artists from Russia and Japan. A separate section of the exhibition will be composed by the works of Keito Yamaguchi, a Japanese artist, a student at the Academy of Fine Arts in St. Petersburg. At our exhibition, she will be a key figure uniting two different civilizations. ”
According to Semyon Mikhailovsky, the most important stage in the development of the project was the joint work with Japanese colleagues and the ability to select things by communicating directly with their authors - students of two of the largest art universities in Japan.
Musashino University of the Arts (MAU), located in Tokyo, was founded in 1929 as a private school, which officially gained university status in 1962. MAU is currently the largest art institute in Japan, with more than 4,500 full-time students. About 2,000 students receive distance education. The expanded structure of the university with the faculties of painting, printing, traditional Japanese painting, sculpture, architecture, fashion and all possible design areas allows you to get education in different areas of the profession. The management of MAU actively supports international relations of the university.
“The overcoming exhibition project, which takes place as part of the cross-cultural year of Russia and Japan, is a great opportunity for young Russian and Japanese artists to demonstrate their achievements. We are deeply grateful to Takeda for their support and we hope that this project will demonstrate the possibility of cooperation between the youth of Russia and Japan and will become the basis for future relations, ”said Professor Tadanori Nagasawa, President of Musashino University of the Arts
The motto of Tama University of the Arts: “Freedom and Will” fully reflects the dialectic of the creative process. Founded in Tokyo in 1935, Tama Private University specializes in fine arts, design, multimedia, and stage design and is considered one of the country’s most prestigious art institutions.
“We would like to express our deep gratitude to the Takeda pharmaceutical company and the rector of the St. Petersburg State Academic Institute of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture named after I. Repin at the Russian Academy of Arts Semen Mikhailovsky and his colleagues for the opportunity to present the works of our students in Russia. We are confident that their participation in the project will become a kind of cultural bridge between Russia and Japan, ”said Mr. Akira Tatehata, President of Tama University of the Arts.
