ART FOR THOUGHT is pleased to present "MOOD DANCES - Wearing Art" by Miki USHIDA, Hisako Sakaguchi and kaorin from December 6, 2020 to December 12, 2020.

This exhibition features Miki USHIDA, who has been presenting works on the theme of femininity and gender, and has started a hat brand "MIKI USHIDA" with the theme of "wearing art" in 2020; Hisako Sakaguchi, who develops stylish works using a character named "Chacorina" as a motif; and Kaorin, who has been presenting works on the theme of "wearing art" for more than 30 years.

Each piece is handmade, and no two are alike.
We hope that "wearing art" will add color to your life in these days when you are less likely to go out due to Corona.

We look forward to seeing you at the exhibition.
