Currently in its final week at the Mori Art Museum in Tokyo, "Go-Betweens: The World Seen Through Children" is a collaborative exhibit by international artists using photography, sculpture, and various other medium to capture the themes of duality and childhood. Some explore a child's reality vs. their imagination, while others look into real situations where children have had to play two different roles.
For example, in photographer Kim Insook's photograph "Great-Grandmother & I" [Photo 1], she explores the own 'dual identity' she experienced in her own childhood as a third-generation Zainichi Korean - or a Korean residing in Japan. Zhang O's "Daddy & I" [Photo 2] is a portrait series featuring Chinese-born daughters and the American fathers who adopted them via international programs.
The exhibition, running through August 31st at the Mori Art Museum, will continue a tour throughout Japan in the next coming months. Here are the remaining dates:
Nagoya City Museum (Saturday, November 8 - Tuesday, December 23, 2014)
Okinawa Prefectural Museum & Art Museum (Friday, January 16 - Sunday, March 15, 2015)
The Museum of Art, Kochi (Sunday, April 5 - Sunday, June 7, 2015)
