Melbourne: Exhibition, Asahi Silver + Black

March 30, 2010

Asahi have collaborated with a host of international artists and designers to create a unique exhibition initiative.

Asahi Silver + Black is a unique combination of art, photography, fashion and design culture, a concept born from the aesthetic of the silver and black Asahi Super Dry label and the brand’s rich history of cutting edge design.

Asahi will exhibit a variety of obscure vintage Asahi objects and artefacts, alongside a range of prints, sketches, installations, photography, fashion and live creative events. It will be the first time Asahi has collaborated with internationally renowned artists.

Guests will be presented with a curated selection of works that acknowledge the Japanese ‘wabi-sabi’ spirit of finding beauty in imperfect things, as well as the Karakuchi project, in which artists will create their own interpretation of the Japanese characters featured on the Asahi Super Dry label.

Karakuchi participants include: Natas Kaupas (USA); Dylan Martorell (Australia); Usugrow (Japan); Michel Leon (USA); McBride Charles Ryan architects (USA); Toshikazu Nozoka (Japan).

Others participating in the show include:
Artists: Dave Kinsey, Evan Demas, Garry Emery
Objects: Kobo Aizawa, Julia Deville
Fashion: Asuza, Assin, Ess-Hoshika, Trimapee
Installations by DC and Casio G-Shock
Stores: Via Alley, Someday, Kazari, CIBI
