In November 2006, Tokyo Wonder Site (TWS) established residency facilities in Aoyama with the aim of facilitating work by artists-in-residence. Activities of Tokyo's newest art platform have, as of this year, expanded further to encompass three locations: Hongo, Shibuya and Aoyama. The culmination of work produced by artist residents at TWS Aoyama between spring and summer this year is presented at this exhibition at TWS Shibuya. The artists: a young American artist, Marina Kappos, who was resident on the Cultural Residency Program; the Korean art group, JNP Production, resident through the Emerging Artist Support Residency Program. We welcome the opportunity to introduce work produced by these extremely talented young artists representing the contemporary art scenes of North America and Asia.
There will also be a work shown by Bosco Sodi, a Mexican artist operating out of Barcelona, who participated through the Exchange Residency Program.
Bringing their own perspective and expressions from their backgrounds, artists are infiltrating their new experience living in Tokyo.TWS will courtly invite you to witness their experience living in a creative megalopolis Tokyo.
