Inter+Play #001:
Arts Towada 10th Anniversary Exhibition

The opening date for Inter+Play #001: Arts Towada 10th Anniversary Exhibition will be announced here on our website once it has been decided.

Apr 18th, 2020 - Aug 30th


Connecting people with the city through art that plays, performs, and resonates

Arts Towada, the city-wide initiative that promotes art throughout the city of Towada and along its main thoroughfare, Kanchogai Avenue, celebrates its tenth anniversary in 2020. Arts Towada has continued to showcase the latest in contemporary art and promote exchange between the city and the museum. This exhibition will be a year-long endeavor, divided into three parts, each with unique content that considers the “interplay” between the artwork and the audience, the Towada Art Center and the city—the spirit that is at the very heart of the Arts Towada project. On display throughout the entirety of the exhibition is a large-scale outdoor sculpture and bench by SUZUKI Yasuhiro and a building in downtown Towada, which has been transformed into a white cube by art collective mé. Highlights during Inter+Play #001 will include works by artists TSUDA Michiko, evala, and MATSUBARA Megumi at the Towada Art Center. Tsuda’s installation will use mirrors, video cameras, and projectors to confound the senses, while those who experience evala’s work will be immersed in a sea of sound. Matsubara will present a brand-new work based on the color red, developed through research conducted during her stay in Towada. In June, Behaviour Problem Trio will hold a night-time music and dance performance in the exhibition gallery.
