Garden for Children

Garden for Children

Exhibition Outline

An exhibition for the enjoyment of all, from infants and toddlers to adults, Garden for Children will celebrate the perceptual powers and mindscape of small children. Featured are hands-on interactive and physically immersive works, newly created by emerging artists, each of which gives orchestration to an entire space. By enabling adults to share a world of art together with children and experience it vicariously through their viewpoint, physical sensations, and feelings, the exhibition will provide occasions for communication among people of different generations and for considering and rediscovering our own relationship with art.

Artists: Mikiko ENDO, Goh IDETA, KOSUGE1-16, Shinji OHMAKI, Saki Satom
