Oct. 5-Dec. 15

“Preface for a Spring Evening Banquet with Cousins in a Peach Blossom Garden,” a text by poet Li Bai (701-62) was the inspiration behind “Travelers Through a Hundred Ages,” an exhibition that aims to connect the past, present and future by looking into relationships between individuals, local communities and art in Momoshima, an island of the Seto Inland Sea.

Featured artists include sculptor Yukinori Yanagi, avant-garde artist Chu Enoki, multimedia artist and sculptor Meiro Koizumi, and mixed media artists Yoshie Ikeuchi, Nobuyuki Oura.
