In February and March 2018, Dr C G Barlow, the founder of Parallax “Art” Fair, curated three shows by Setsuko Ono at PAF 2018, Daiwa Foundation and Asia House in London. Ono had first taken part in Parallax “Art” Fair in 2016. A catalogue with essays by Professor Paul Gladston, Professor Piero Gleijeses and Dr C G Barlow was produced. Out of this material emerged a lecture given by Setsuko Ono at the Daiwa Foundation and then a conversation night at Asia House between Professor Paul Gladston and Setsuko Ono. The curatorial method was designed to draw attention to the actual space and conflict with the viewer’s perception; to draw them to the present moment. Setsuko Ono’s work and the exhibition were publicised in national and international Media.
