Group Exhibition

" 海女がつなぐ13人のART "



In Toba-Shima region, the number of Ama divers has decreased to one-eighth over the last 50 years, from about 4,000 to 514. Most of them are now in their 60s and 70s, so the existence of Ama in the next 10 to 20 years is facing a serious risk.In addition to the aging population and lack of successors, changes in the marine environment have a major impact on the decline of catches, which contribute to the crisis.

In order to spread the word about this situation and the culture of Ama, we hope to stimulate interest in Ama culture through a variety of artworks by artists with ties to Mie Prefecture and the Toba Sea Folk Museum.

The artists also continue their creation being sensitive to changes in the environment. How do they see Ama, a unique and rare group of fishermen who dive into the ocean with simple fishing tools using their own breath, and catch only what the nature allows them to? The exhibition will feature works that depict the Ama through different approaches, such as abstract paintings, prints, illustrations, photographs, collages, and dance. We hope this exhibition will help visitors familiarize with the culture of Ama and create a new generation of Ama fans.
