Creative Group Exhibition KIRA KIRA TOKYO vol.11 2011.Sep.10.SAT – 18.SUN at The Beaumont Studio 1F in BC
KIRA KIRA is ‘a free to enter’ group exhibition that jewellery brand RUKUS New Age Designs organises for underground artists to get together and show off their work. The exhibition is about more than fashion and jewellery however, as some of the artists who join are dancers, DJs, installation artists, stylists and so on. KIRA KIRA also holds a reception party for these exhibitors to share their inspiration. While this is not a huge commercial exhibition, it is a very good place to keep your eye on up-and-coming underground Japanese artists. The event is held several times in a year, so keep an eye on their frequently updated website for all the latest details.
