The Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation and the APT Institute are pleased to present the group exhibition, Acting Out of Nothingness, featuring the contemporary Japanese artists Kanako Sasaki, Koki Tanaka, Zon Ito, Goro Murayama, Motohiro Tomii, Masahiro Wada and Lyota Yagi.

The exhibition, part of the 2013 Frieze London Art Fair, will display artworks lent by the APT Institute from the Artist Pension Trust (APT) collection, the largest contemporary lending library worldwide.

The selected artists are united through a common interest in the everyday: driven by ideas resonant to Japanese culture, their artworks reveal hidden codes, which are often overlooked, in an apparently systematic and homogenised society. Acting Out of Nothingness channels new perceptions, overlaying a disruptive new rhythm over the measured cadence of the artists’ backgrounds.

APT Institute is a non-profit organization founded in 2013 by the Artist Pension Trust® in response to the need among contemporary artists for global exposure and recognition of their artwork. Designed for curators, museums, and art organizations worldwide, Loans & Exhibitions facilitates loan requests and exhibition planning from the APT Collection; Art Concierge tailors art interactions between curators or other qualified art professionals and APT artists; Global Connect arranges artist-in-residence programs, studios opportunities and artists networking exclusively for APT artists.
