Ume Kayo and Kawashima Kotori Capture Present-Day Fukuoka

START: Mar 20, 2021 END: May 16, 2021

A special anniversary exhibition is set to take place on April 12 in the Mitsubishi Estate Artium, IMS. With the building set to close on August 31, this year marks the last time the facility will host this kind of celebratory event. The exhibition will showcase work by leading photographers Ume Kayo and Kawashima Kotori. Their work offers unique perspectives of central Fukuoka City, an area currently experiencing large-scale change thanks to the Tenjin Big Bang redevelopment project. Art director Sobue Shin will be helping bring together the work of these two photographers, who are known for their timing and understanding of distance.
