Art Brut Then & Now—a new exhibition series that features artists long active in the Art Brut scene in Japan and abroad alongside artists newly emergent in recent years. In the first exhibition in the series, we examine artists who work with “letters.” Displayed in the exhibition, entitled LETTERS Tangling Unraveling, are works by eight artists who are fascinated and obsessed with letters. With the exhibited works as a departure point, speakers from various professions, such as author, graphic designer or typeface designer, who work in a close connection to letters, will talk about the aspects of letters that appeal to them and the expression using letters.
