End of Summer is a cross-cultural art program based in Portland, Oregon hosted at Yale Union. It is comprised of an annual summer residency for artists from Japan and a lecture series. Outside of this core summer program, symposiums, exhibitions and other related projects are also organized in Japan, and internationally. End of Summer exists to build a dialogue between the U.S., specifically the region of the Pacific Northwest, and Japan through contemporary art. Through this entry point, the program aims to engage in a larger exploration of Japanese art in the era of global artistic practice, as well as the continual reconsideration of notions of East and West, center and periphery.
