The artist will talk particularly about the production process of his recent solo exhibition in Japan’s Art Tower Mito, the art museum only 100km away from the site of the Fukushima nuclear disaster. He will share stories about the place, the exhibition theme of hope, and his collaborators including the curator Mizuki Takahashi.

About the Offsite Art Sonje Program
The Art Sonje Center initiates the Offsite Art Sonje Program in January 2016 to continue the museum’s educational role and extend its program venue while the Center is temporarily closed for renovation. Located near the Center, the Offsite Art Sonje hosts talk events on the last Wednesday of each month until the Center reopens in the fall. Its large window wall permits passersby to peer inside the space, blurring the line between inside and outside. The Offsite Art Sonje Program hopes to offer unique and meaningful experiences of museum programs to both the participants and the onlookers.

* Due to the Art Sonje Center’s renovation, this program will be held in the Offsite Art Sonje.
