A controversial art exhibition featuring works such as a statue symbolizing the “comfort women” who were forced or coerced into Japan’s wartime brothel system will be held in Tokyo next month, its organizers have said, after being postponed for about a year due to protests.

The “Non-Freedom of Expression Exhibition” will run from April 2 to 5 in the suburban city of Kunitachi, showcasing works that have been banned or removed from public art museums due to their controversial nature, the organizers said Friday.
