Ghosts, Underpants and Stars―A Place Where Children Can be Children

Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo

poster for Ghosts, Underpants and Stars―A Place Where Children Can be Children

This event has ended.

This summer-holiday exhibition aimed mainly at infants and primary school children, breaks the normal, staid rules of the museum, such as ‘Don’t Run’, ‘Don’t Touch’ or ‘Keep Quiet’, to provide a place where children are free to actively engage and have fun. Based around three keywords which symbolize the world of children: ‘Ghosts’ (imagination), ‘Underpants’ (children’s growth) and ‘Stars’ (wishes), the exhibition will include not only works that are just to be appreciated for what they are, but will also include interactive exhibits and participatory programs.
