[Hara X] — A series of events presented by the Hara Museum featuring various artists whose performance of music, dance and other types of expression will be streamed online from some place within the museum, each time according to the performer’s choice.
On the night of the 2nd of December, which coincides with the debut of her new album, Ichiko Aoba will give a special one-night live performance at the Hara Museum. Her stage will be the sunroom in Gallery II. Originally part of a residence built in 1938, the sunroom has now served as a venue for art during the past 40 years. It’s a unique space whose large, semi-circular windows look onto the museum’s moss-covered side garden. Once upon a time, the sea was visible from these same windows. We invite you to enjoy the new world of music created by Ichiko Aoba, merged with the echoes of the room’s distant past.
* Please note that this will be a livestreamed, Internet-based performance.
