Art Brut on the Streets of Nakano, Tokyo!

“Exploring the Limitless Frontiers of Human Creativity in 2021” 

Jan,23 sat-Feb,23 tue , 2021

Organizer: NAKANO Art Brut on the Streets Committee

This exhibition is part of the “Art Brut on the Streets of Nakano, Tokyo! “Exploring the Limitless Frontiers of Human Creativity in 2021” held in partnership between local commerce associations and Nakano-based Social Welfare Organization Aiseikai. This collaborative event has been held annually since 2010, and aims to turn the streets and locations of our beloved Nakano into one big public art gallery.
Our theme this year is “the everyday”. A concept that is undergoing some serious redefining as “the new normal” becomes entrenched.
This year we feature the works of 22 art brut artists from across Japan in the form of posters/banners and actual pieces on display in public.

Please take note

We ask all exhibition visitors to wear masks at all times, and to maintain safe social distancing with other visitors.

We will also be taking your temperature upon entry (to all enclosed gallery spaces), and ask for you to disinfect your hands with disinfectant provided.
Please note that we may limit entry if there are many visitors.

Please also note that the exhibits may be closed or cancelled without prior notice due to unforeseen circumstance.
Any information regarding the status of the exhibits will be updated on this website and via our social media channels.


We ask for your kind understanding and cooperation.
