"Move Arts Japan" carries the message that artists will "Move" Japan (move in the sense of 'shift', and in the sense of 'stir emotion') through Artist in Residence Programs (AIR).
In this exhibition, as the first initiative of "Move Arts Japan", a website connecting a network of AIRs in Japan, eight artists will be presenting the results of their experiences as they toured a number of AIRs throughout Japan.
