Izumi Kato is included in Reborn Art Festival

Ishinomaki, Miyagi Prefecture, Japan

Reborn Art Festival is an arts and culture festival inaugurated during the summer of 2017 in one of the regions hardest hit by the triple disaster that devastated the northeastern coastline of Japan in 2011. Artworks created by renowned artists from Japan and around the world in collaboration with local people are exhibited in the Ishinomaki and Oshika areas. For this edition Izumi Kato presents a new permanent sculpture commission made with locally sourced stone.

The summer program is curated by Kenji Kubota, who aims to make the festival a place for “sharing your creativity.” Taking place in the tenth-anniversary year of the Great East Japan Earthquake, the 2022 edition of the Reborn-Art Festival aims to bring together the lessons and results of past festivals to establish new connections that inspire the Tohoku region to recover on its own terms. It seeks to once again move people’s imaginations and form relationships that allow for the creation of a new way of life inspired not by self-interest but concern for others and a fluid way of engaging with things.
