Cross-scapes: Interconnecting Art
This event has ended.
Keio Museum Commons (KeMCo) is a new university museum designed to foster exchange. The inaugural event series, Cross-scapes, will allow people to encounter many of the objects which the University has accumulated over the years. Cross-scapes includes two exhibitions, ‘Letter-scape’ and ‘Gathering-scape’, and a symposium event, ‘Book-scape’, which we hope will inspire fresh dialogues, and open up new interpretative horizons.
