28th January to 13th February, 2022. 34°41′11″N 135°31′12″E - A myriad of question marks in the form of art will appear in Osaka. It questions all the assumptions we've taken for granted (and sometimes the subjects we've avoided thinking or talking about). "What is possible in art?" "What is impossible?" - Questions. Thought. Research.Discovery. Marvel. Spreading. Sharing. This will be a collective experience of art that will serve as a pre-event for the Osaka Kansai International Art Festival, which will be held in the same year of the Expo in 2025. We hope you will join us.
That you are reading this message right now, in fact, could be said to be a part of a huge work of art.
