This event has ended.

Argentinian artist Leandro Erlich is known for works like “The Swimming Pool” at the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa that employ optical illusions to shake up our preconceptions. This exhibition, his largest solo show to date, presents some 40 works including new pieces. Eighty percent are shown in Japan for the first time, including the installation series “Building,” which invites visitors to pose in disorienting structures switching around walls and floors.
