Nobumasa Kushino Outside Japan Exhibition
‘Outsider art’ generally refers to the works of people who have not received a formal education in art. This movement was triggered by the Art Brut Japonais Exhibition that was first held in Paris in 2010 and attracted a horde of 120,000 visitors. It is a new movement in art that has generated a lot of interest worldwide.
This time, at the Outside Japan Exhibition by Nobumasa Kushino, over 70 people who can’t live without creative expression will have their creations displayed. Look forward to seeing over 2,000 carefully curated works by talented hidden artists including works of artists living with disabilities.
