Donor’s Night at Tamada Projects

For its recent exhibition of work by Jaume Plensa, Tamada Projects asked visitors to donate their ¥1000 entrance fee to either Tokyo Art Beat or Médecins du Monde. As a result, they raised ¥285,000, — ¥120,000 of it for TAB — and presented the funds at a special closing party on August 4th.
