More than two years have passed since the new coronavirus pandemic transformed our lives. Not infrequently we feel as though our sphere of activities, but also our very lives, feelings, and perspectives had shrunk considerably.
This exhibition, “Faraway Places / Nearby Places,” consists of works that broaden our narrowed vision. Featured are works by artists related to Eastern Europe and Russia, as well as those, mainly new acquisitions, from Okinawa. Each of these groups is given a separate section. We hope that this will help make faraway places feel closer, or recognize the remoteness of places that normally feel familiar.
