For children, going to a museum to look at art can seem boring, which is why “Playmaking” takes an interactive approach to attract a young audience.

Created by four artists known for the element of fun in their works, all the installations here have been designed to encourage kids to touch or play with them. Misaki Kawai uses bright colors and crafts, Ryota Kuwakubo plays with light and shadows, Tsuyoshi Ozawa revels in humor, and Tetsuya Umeda utilizes sounds and performance. Various workshops where kids can learn to make funny fluffy costumes or experiment with light and shadows are also being held during the exhibition period; March 1-Jun. 1.

Marugame Genichiro-Inokuma Museum of Contemporary Art; 80-1 Hama-machi, Marugame, Kagawa. Marugame Stn. 10 a.m.-6 p.m. ¥950. 0877-24-7755; www.mimoca.org/en
