The artists we are introducing create in deeply unique and idiosyncratic ways. Artists that are compelled to fill a page to the brim. Artists that are compelled to tie and bend leaves. Artists that are compelled to draw only on pieces of discarded wallpaper. The logic and systems we see these artists adopt can challenge some of our most fundamental notions of what “art” is. Our reaction is not their concern. These artists are simply compelled to create. This series of exhibitions will travel across 6 different exhibition spaces in Tokyo, featuring the works of 16 Japanese Art Brut artists and 2 artists from overseas. This series of exhibitions also features the input from a range of specialists from folklorist, photographers, and museum director (to be referred to as the “new angle navigators”). They will be offering their professional and multi-faceted insights into Art Brut, the potential of art in society and the human compulsion to create.

We are very excited to have some very notable professionals from their respective fields offer valuable insight and new perspectives on art brut and the depths of the human compulsion to create.
