Group Artist Exhibition


2018.08.20 - 2018.09.01
EXHIBITION HOURS: 11:00 - 18:00
*Closed on Sundays & Public Holidays


We are pleased to present a group exhibition by 10 artists registered with the Organization for the Promotion of Independence of Persons with Disabilities. The artists, who continue to pursue self-expression and self-exploration despite their handicaps, bring us an opportunity to reconsider "what art means to human beings" through their creative motivation that wells up from within. We hope you will spend a meaningful time listening to the "joy of painting" that resonates and plays in a single space with ten artists. During the exhibition, a guest talk will be given by Takaya Matsuda, representative of MUKU, which promotes art by people with intellectual disabilities through its products, and at the party, solo guitarist Paniyolo (Muneki Kosaka) will play live in the background.
