“Role Play,” an exhibition at Prada Aoyama, Tokyo

“An alter ego, persona, or avatar may be aspirational, It may relate to one’s personal and cultural history and sense of otherness; it may be a form of activism, or a means of manoeuvring through entrenched, even polarised positions, toward empathy: putting oneself in another’s shoes,” – Melissa Harris.

Curated by Melissa Harris, the new exhibition brings together an eclectic cast of emerging artists who explore alternative means of identity. Featuring photographic, video and audio works by artists Juno Calypso, Beatrice Marchi, Haruka Sakaguchi, Griselda San Martin, Tomoko Sawada, and Bogosi Sekhukhuni, along with a light installation project conceived by the creative agency, Random Studio.

On view now until June 20 2022 at Prada Aoyama, 5 Chome-2-6 Minamiaoyama, Minato City, Tokyo
