The Tohoku region in northern Japan is renowned for its severe winters and uncharacteristically cool summers that make the lifestyle in the area very different to other parts of Japan.

This exhibition, organized by four artists from the Tohoku University of Arts & Design (TUAD), presents works that speak from the heart. It offers artistic expressions of Tohoku’s vitality, its people’s admirable resilience and their ability to overcome numerous struggles. These heartfelt expressions of everyday life are also a celebration of the Tohoku people.

There will be a special talk session with the four young participating TUAD artists); May 4-May 27.
