"Kids House Theatre" by Mitsuhiro Ikeda is displayed on the white fence of MOT

This fall, an artwork will appear on the white fence around MOT (Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo).

The "Kids House Theatre" on the Kiba Koen side of the fence is a work in which artist Mitsuhiro Ikeda and children at Motokaga Elementary School created images of unique houses inspired by "scenes of daily life in the Kiyosumi-shirakawa neighborhood." Kiba Koen is an ideal place for chilling out after your tour around Kiyosumi-shirakawa area!
The work will be displayed until late March 2018 (planned)
