Guest Curator 2016

Hiroyuki Hattori (Independent Curator)
Hattori is an independent curator working mainly in Asian region. Born in Aichi Prefecture in 1978, Hattori completed postgraduate studies in architecture at Waseda University in 2006 before becoming curator at Aomori Contemporary Art Centre (ACAC), Aomori Public University in 2009. His constant pursuit of "alternative" setups has led to the establishment of art spaces—all known by the abbreviation "MAC"—in Yamaguchi, Hanoi and Aomori. He has been exploring the creative relation between our everyday life and the idea of "public space." Recent curatorial work includes Towada Oirase Art Festival (Towada Art Center and other sites in the Oirase area, 2013) and Media/Art Kitchen (Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur, Manila, Bangkok and Aomori, 2013–14), among others.
