ContentTOKAS (Tokyo Arts and Space) launched the TOKAS Residency program in 2006, offering creators of various genres and nationalities the opportunity to live and work in another country, welcoming them to Tokyo or dispatching them to overseas destinations. This exhibition presents works by creators who participated in the TOKAS Residency program in 2017.

In our daily lives, we adapt almost unconsciously to our surrounding environment. Our bodies act out everyday routines by accepting and incorporating various constant, quasi-permanent factors, such as geography, culture, customs and the zeitgeist.

By participating in a residency program, the eleven artists introduced here intentionally placed themselves in unfamiliar environments, and gained experiences and insights that deepened their understanding of their own viewpoints and attitudes. When they output these interpretations in visible form, each adopting their own distinctive approach, the behaviors and actions they have internally accumulated and processed are externalized, and engage with others to construct new relationships.
