Yuriko Fujima Yamaguchi, Europe, Ragnarok.

On Sunday 19 June, the Japan Festival with the theme ‘Reconnect for Tomorrow’ will be held in the Amstelveen city centre. As part of this event, the Cobra Museum will also be in a Japanese mood that day with free activities. For example, on the last day of the exhibition ‘Humanity’s End as a New Beginning‘, the works of Japanese-American visual artist Yuriko Yamaguchi can be viewed entirely free of charge while enjoying Japanese snacks. Visitors can also participate free of charge in a walk-in workshop, where there is plenty of opportunity to make their own Japanese art.

In the Voordrachtszaal of the Cobra Museum, thirty watercolours by Japanese-American artist Yuriko Fujita Yamaguchi will be on display, painted in response to a special collection of myths from all over the world. These old stories, brought together by the Amstelveen Emeritus Professor Mineke Schipper, each give their vision of what the end of the world could look like, but also of how it could lead to a new beginning. On 19 June, the last day of the exhibition, Yamaguchi’s remarkable works are freely accessible.

The exhibition ‘Humanity’s End as a New Beginning‘ is free to visit on 19 June. The other exhibitions in the Cobra Museum can also be visited on this day, but the museum’s regular entrance fee has to be paid.

The studio in the Cobra Museum is, as always, freely accessible on Sundays from 11.00 to 14.00. This time, however, the artistic assignment has a Japanese flavour: participants are invited to use Japanese brushes and ecoline to depict their own view of the end of the world as a new beginning. First, take a tour of Yamaguchi’s inspiring works of art and then get to work yourself under the guidance of the museum’s creative staff.
