We’ve been a fan of Asahi beer for some time, but a new project from this crisp, delicious beverage has earned it an extra special place in our hearts. Wednesday saw the launch of Asahi Silver + Black, an exhibition combining art, fashion, photography and design.
The inspiration for the exhibition is Asahi’s own famous silver and black label, and while not all works limit themselves to the palette, there is a common thread in what the Japanese refer to as ‘wabi-sabi’ – finding beauty in imperfect things. The exhibition also contains the Karakuchi Project, featuring six international artists who have been selected to give their own interpretation of the Japanese characters found on the Asahi Label.
Alongside works from international and local artists and designers, visitors can view rare and vintage artefacts from the Asahi brand.
Asahi Silver + Black is on at aMBUSH Gallery, Waterloo until May 8 and entry is free (our favourite price).
