Italian Cultural Institute in Tokyo held a two-person exhibition Robert Bosisio and Michela Pedron.


The AMACI (Association of Italian Contemporary Art Museums) is an NPO founded in 2003 that currently brings together 24 major museums in Italy, with the aim of improving the dissemination and knowledge of their collections. Since 2005, AMACI has organized the day of Italian Contemporary Art in October, in which participating museums open their doors for free for a rich series of events, exhibitions, conferences, and workshops. From this year, now in its fourteenth edition, the “Giornata del Contemporaneo” takes place in collaboration with the network of Italian Cultural Institutes in the world, for a week dedicated to the promotion of Italian contemporary art. At the Italian Cultural Institute in Tokyo, the The day of Italian Contemporary Art is celebrated in collaboration with two well-known city galleries, the 104Galerie and the Hiro Gallery - the latter specialized in Italian art today.

HIRO GALLERY introduced the whole series of artworks by Michela Pedron, a new Italian pop artist, including new works of paintings, objet, and installations. She utilizes the silks or fabrics from her collection as supports, then paints motifs in which humanity has dual conceptions. And for three-dimensional works, she adds vivid colorings or humor to ready-made sculptures or models. That makes viewers wipe out conventional fixed ideas, then gives a new point of view, and urge to re-think the social problems or essence of things.
