Ryudai Takano “Instore”
This event has ended.
Ryudai Takano has produced works on the theme of gender and sexuality, as exemplified by his Ihei Kimura Photography Award-winning work “In My Room” (published in 2005).

This is the first large-scale solo exhibition of the artist’s work, showing approximately 130 works in chronological order.
