CONTACT/CONNECT – An Art Exhibition bringing Japan and the world together
Art from Japan and around the world find mutual points of contact to create stimulation. This exhibition explores the influences and resonances exerted upon various artists from around the world and Japan in the fields of fine art, literature, film and manga, such as Matisse, Richter, Yasumasu Morimura and Akira Kurozawa.
The exhibition venue is none other than the World Heritage Site Kiyomizu-dera Temple, which also conceivably is the “original museum” in Japan, because it has championed art and culture from long ago, bringing works of art to the attention of the public. Thus, in this fitting setting, visitors can enjoy installations arranged to make the most of the beautiful garden areas and traditional architecture.
The task of overall director is undertaken by the novelist Maha Harada, who has written many in-depth books on art and who also has had a career as a curator.
Visitors can enter this exhibition from 7:00 in the morning, so ICOM participants can come and enjoy the art before sitting down to conference meetings.

On the final day of the general conference, a unique event will be held at the Kyoto National Museum predominantly involving children, showcasing their efforts to carry our regional cultures on into the future.
The children will present four unique performing arts and festival events—making it a wonderful opportunity to communicate the appeals of traditional Kyoto to the rest of the world.
At the same time, special classes will be held for the next-generation of children to help them understand and get closer to cultural properties.The theme for ICOM Kyoto 2019 is “Museums as Cultural Hubs: The Future of Tradition.” We hope you will take this chance to view the fantastic performances of these children, and their tireless activities to carry tradition on into the future.

Participants will learn the basic principles and terminology of DRM, an overview of disaster planning and preparedness, with practical exercises for documentation, evacuation, and salvage of museum collections.
Lead instructors for the workshop are Corine Wegener, ICOM DRMC / Director, Smithsonian Cultural Rescue Initiative and Samuel Franco Arce, ICOM DRMC / Program Coordinator, Blue Shield Guatemala.
What is the aim of the activity?
To provide museum professionals an introduction to disaster risk management principles specific to museums and collecting institutions.
Why is Disaster Risk Management important for the future of tradition?
It is the ethical and professional responsibility of museum professional to prepare to protect collections from damage in disasters and preserve them for future generations.
