This event has ended.

Amidst the madness of contemporary city life, what is China’s present, as expressed by C.H.I, the most noticed contemporary artist in Beijing?
The curator of this exhibition is Yasumasa Yonehara, an editor and occasional instant camera photographer who boasts 2.36 million followers on Weibo (also known as “Chinese Twitter”). Yonehara, whose who is also known overseas, became acquainted with C.H.I in 2012. That year, he visited C.H.Iʼs solo exhibition in Beijing, at a gallery run by the same curator who had handled his own exhibition. Seeing C.H.I’s work, with all sorts of eccentric and fashionable presentations he had never before imagined, gave him a shock stronger than anything from Japan could have. Five years have since passed, and this is Yonehara’s first opportunity to introduce the work of this cutting-edge Chinese artist in Tokyo.
This exhibition will showcase around 60 of C.H.I’s main artworks, in addition to displaying some new pieces.
