1st Annual Hopi/Zuni Artist Show in Japan

The 1st Annual Hopi/Zuni Artist show was held in Saitama, Japan at Salon de Flamme Gallery.

This show was held to bring awareness to the Japanese public of fake Hopi/Zuni jewelry artwork that is being copied and sold as authentic.

Lectures were held November 7th at the Ainu Cultural Center in Tokyo and November 8th at Rikkyo University in Ikebukuro. At Rikkyo University they saw pictures that were printed off the internet in one afternoon, of some of leading Hopi artists work being made and sold in Japan.

Participating Hopi artists were Alvin Taylor, Merle Namoki, Gerald Lomaventema and Zuni artists Tony Eriacho, Jr.

At the lectures, the artists each spoke of how fake and imitation artwork were impacting the local economy, where most people are either full-time or part-time artists.

Atsunori Ito, special research fellow at the National Museum of Ethnology and Ph.D. course student at Tokyo Metropolitan University spoke at length about Indigenouse Intellectual Property Rights, Hopi and Hopi Arts, Hopi Jewelry, imitating Hopi/Zuni jewelry in the Global Market and response to "Fake" issue.

Tony Eriacho, Jr., Vice President of Council for Indigenous Arts & Crafts, spoke of laws in U.S. on the imitation issue and difference between handmade and Indian made.

On November 10th and 11th the artists held a show with demonstrations, singing and showed displays with fake/imitation jewelry. When all was done the artists visited some Japanese tourists' attractions and one shop where authentic Hopi/Zuni jewelry was sold.

Coordinators of this show were Atsunori Ito and Gerald Lomaventema. Participating artists paid for their own expenses including airfare and gallery space. The show was well attended by the Japanese public and Japanese show owners who carry authentic Hopi/Zuni artwork. Lomaventema said that the show is not affiliated with any religious group or entities and is made possible by the artists themselves.


いくつか、ミスプリがありましたが、それはご愛敬。

二度の講演会のこと、日本側のコーディネーターのこと、来日の趣旨、作家の自腹の出費で開催したこと、宗教的な活動とは一切関係のないこと等が、端的な文章で書かれていました。

浅草の雷門の前で撮影した4名の作家の写真も掲載されていました。

とても嬉しいです。
