In this exhibition, volunteer staff voted for impressive exhibitions from the 2010 – 2018 organized by the Kyoto Art Center. The exhibition framework was assembled based on the vote results.
This exhibition “Methods of Connection”, by Tao Hui and Kohei Maeda, try to present the multifaceted expression in this international comings and goings of information.

Those videos on display, which share no actual connection, lead to individual contemplation of each piece whilst alluding to the incomplete stories of the protagonists as well as their possible interrelations.
