OPEN SITE is a program aimed at creating a platform that brings together a full range of projects seeking to create new forms of expression across all genres, open to society. After rigorous review, nine projects have been selected, including exhibitions, performance works, theater works and more, from numerous applications from Japan and overseas. Moreover, a total of 11 projects will be implemented including the TOKAS Recommendation Program and educational programs.
As the cross-genre and interdisciplinary nature of art continues to evolve, you can rely on us to host programs of ambitious self-expression, of free and powerful artistic will, without being constrained by existing genres.
