This event has ended.
Crows appear in myths around the world as good-luck omens and sun symbols, while also being repeatedly depicted as emblems of evil and ill fortune, due to the association of their black feathers and carrion-chomping habits with death. Both Makoto Aida and Chim↑Pom are known for employing unconventional viewpoints and techniques to get to the heart of social and political issues, and the works by these artists, produced on the common theme of the crow, are sure to offer a superb chance to observe society from a different perspective.
