Gallery closed on Sunday, Monday, and national holidays.



Toki-no-Wasuremono presents an exhibition of three promising artists born in the 1980s.
Although their mediums differ, these three artists have a strong will in how they create the thing they want to express.
Nakamura Megu is based in Kyoto, creating works such as toilet paper scultpures and works made of pierced graph paper.
Ozaki Shinpey is inspired by environmental psychology and creates landscapes of contemporary Tohoku, where he was born and raised.
Tanikawa Kirico uses the traditional medium of oil paint to create detailed works of objects like high heels and brassieres on gravel and asphalt.
In this exhibition we will present several pieces by each artist, including large works.
Each artist will hold a gallery talk with a guest lecturer.
