(According to the content, this project is held in TWS Shibuya.)


"A room of wonder" takes inspiration in the wonder rooms, the private prototypes of modern museums under Renaissance times, in order to create a museum of experiences, a collection of wonders of a group of artists and its insertion in real time in an exhibition room. A collection of Japanese men and women, their biographies, their days, their belonging to different art histories, imaginaries and generations, working collaboratively across fields for the creation of a room of wonders.

Visitors are welcome to experience the Exhibits by the collaborators. There are small rooms built in the TWS Shibuya gallery spaces, and each artist will present a unique experience for you. (it will take approx. 40- 60 mins. to experience all rooms)
