One day in Pittsburgh/ One day in Hiroshima

April 22, 2011 8:00 PM–11:00 PM

Frank-Ratchye STUDIO for Creative Inquiry,
CMU College of Fine Arts, Room CFA-111 

Former fellow, Mayumi Matsuo, will coordinate a cross-pacific communication, using Skype, between Pittsburgh and Hiroshima to raise awareness about family and community issues. Students from the two cities will be encouraged to discuss hopes and concerns and topics such as talking with family, economics, health and how they can have influence. The dialogue is part of an exhibition of Matsuo’s work at Gallery G in Hiroshima. The show includes installation works focused on her community based research in the two cities and developed during her stay at the STUDIO for Creative Inquiry. Recent works include “Pittsburgh Income Map”, “Hiroshima Seniority Map”, and “Sweet & Salty Houses”, a group of houses made from sugar and salt.

Free and open to the public
