Celebrating 10 Years of Arts Towada
A year-long exhibition in three parts, featuring the latest works from emerging artists around the world

Arts Towada celebrates its tenth anniversary in 2020. This city-wide initiative is unlike any other in Japan, promoting art throughout the city of Towada and along its main thoroughfare, Kanchogai Avenue. At the center of the Arts Towada initiative is the Towada Art Center. The museum promotes creative synergy with unforgettable art experiences, showcasing the latest in contemporary art and promoting exchange between artists, citizens, and visitors to the city.

Arts Towada has taken an approach that pursues the combination of cutting-edge contemporary expression with a universal appeal. Inter+Play, which commemorates a decade since the start of the initiative, embodies that very attitude and will be a year-long exhibition divided into three parts, each with unique content. Inter+Play is a bridge between society, the city and its architecture, and even our own bodies, inside and out. As such, each of its three parts will feature works and artists that allow visitors to go between each as freely as they please and open up new possibilities in the spaces that we inhabit.

*Exhibiting artists will rotate throughout the exhibition

Part 1: Saturday 18 April 2020 – Sunday 30 August 2020
Part 2: Saturday 19 September 2020 – Monday 11 January 2021
Part 3: Saturday 23 January 2021 – Sunday 30 May 2021
