Towada Art Center again welcomes internationally acclaimed artist Yoshitomo Nara to hold a solo exhibition. The Little Art Club in the Blue Woods, a project started by Nara during his exhibition The Little Little House in The Blue Woods, will resume activities in conjunction with the exhibition.
Young artists chosen from a public offering, over two resident production sessions in Towada, created artworks together with director Nara and advisor Hiroshi Fuji, who is also the director of Towada Art Center and an artist himself. The results of their labor are displayed in Through the Forest…
The venue is the city itself. Since its opening 2008, the Towada Art Center has been dedicated to being a museum open to the city and rooted in the region. This exhibition serves to extend its activities and bring about change in the community.
