Venue:1F Main Gallery

"Socially Engaged Art" (SEA) is a new wave of art gaining attention recently as art that is active within real world. Through processes of dialogue and cooperation between people, these artists attempt to bring about some form of social change. The exhibition aims to introduce representative artists and projects from abroad such as Ai Weiwei, Pedro Reyes, Suzanne Lacy, or Park Fiction, as well as re-examine Japanese artists within the context of SEA and present them globally. In particular, the exhibit addresses the practices of Japanese artists who have become more conscious of engagement in society, especially after the events of 3.11. Five projects will also be held for this exhibition. We welcome your interest and anticipation in Japan's first full SEA exhibition.
