TURN Chakai

“Exploring the Earth and people through art” is the theme of the “TURN chakai.”
In a space designed for the exchange of mutual thoughts and feelings which will be decked out like a traditional tearoom, instead of enjoying tea in the usual manner, people can spend time making and conceptualizing things together using our hands. In the large exhibition space, there are 12 tea rooms made of bamboo. In 11 of these tea rooms, 11 artists will take part in activities with visitors, based on their TURN activities oversees. In the central tea room, TURN supervisor Katsuhiko Hibino will act as facilitator while faculty members from overseas art universities and Tokyo University of the Arts talk online and exchange their thoughts, perspectives and feelings.
