Next Generation 2015 Interview with Photographer Yukihito Kono 【Aesthetica】
Next Generation 2015: Future Greats
Contemporary photography is entering a limitless post-analogue phase of innovation. Aesthetica has handpicked a selection of promising young photographers working across documentary, fine art and experimental digital media, in partnership with London College of Communication. These creatives are pushing the limits of photography through cross-platform experimentation. We interview Kanazawa, Japan-based photographer and London College of Communication alumnus Yukihito Kono.
Yukihito is at the forefront of an evolution in contemporary Japanese photography, eschewing the impressionistic, blurred and out-of-focus quality of renowned 20th century Japanese photographers such as Noboyushi Araki for a clearer, more defined and dynamic form of image-making. The young photographer divides his time between London and Kanazawa, Japan. He is co-founder of STAY ALONE, a publishing house for independent artists, and has self-published a series of books. Yukihito has exhibited internationally, and has featured in such publications as Dazed & Confused and, most recently, Aesthetica.

Frieze Week: insider’s guide by Max Mara Art Prize nominee Emma Hart
At the historic headquarters of Max Mara in northern Italy, the six names of the Max Mara Art Prize for Women shortlist were revealed earlier this month. The finalists include Wimbledon College of Arts course director Tania Kovats, Central Saint Martins lecturer Emma Hart, and Chelsea College of Arts alumna Ana Genovés.
Ahead of the Prize announcement, nominee Emma Hart shares her insider’s guide to where to go in London during Frieze Week.
On Wednesday 14th October I’ll be setting out to hear what Marcus Coates has to say as he gives an artist talk at Kate MacGarry, where he has collaborated with dance artist Henry Montes on the current exhibition which tests whether contemporary dance can be of any use in society today.
The exhibition a Question Of Movement: MARCUS COATES & HENRY MONTES continues at Kate MacGarry until 24 October.
My own twinkle toes will also hot step it to Space on Mare Street where I can’t wait to see Florence Peake’s exhibition, more dance served up with a bonkers vision and sculptural excess.
David Roberts Art Foundation
On Thursday 15th October I’m hoping I get into see Caroline Achaintre, John Bock, Sue Tompkins and others present new performances at the David Roberts Art Foundation. Entry is on a first come, first served basis and it will be very busy as witnessing a “legendary’ John Bock performance is something you must do at least once in your life and Caroline Achaintre’s never presented a performance before, it’s her “live” debut. I hope I get in!
The exhibition Albert the Kid is Ghosting continues at David Roberts Art Foundation until 12 December with special opening times during Frieze Week.

CSM Foundation Invited to Collaborate in Italy
In the Summer of 2015 a group of specialist Graphic Design Foundation students were invited to Opificio della Rosa, a castle in Italy, to take part in a collaborative printmaking residency project with students from the University of Fine Art in Rome.
The students took part in a 12-day experimental workshop exploring colour woodcut and letterpress techniques while living and working together in the ancient castle. They reinterpreted and developed a new setof Major Arcana tarot and together created a deck of the 22 hand crafted cards.
The project was coordinated by lecturers Maria Pina Bentivenga University of Fine Art in Rome and Umberto Giovannini from Central Saint Martins in London.
