“LOVE LOVE SHOW” featured pairs of artists who used the whole exhibition space as a canvas to create installations around the theme of“encounters.” Participating artists included practitioners engaged in music, photography, manga, multimedia art, architecture, graphic design, and literature. This playful exhibition focused on what happens when an artwork encounters a space, and when visitors then encounter that space. Through these “encounters,” the exhibition was able to create new value as well as additional opportunities for expression. The two venues for “LOVE LOVE SHOW” were the Aomori Museum of Art and Towada Art Center, whose architecture and initiatives demonstrate what a museum can and should look like in the twenty- first century. This exhibition was also a rare “encounter” between the two museums and set a new precedent for future collaborations.
