Under the supervision of Professor Yuko HASEGAWA, this exhibition is a practicum of the curation course for five international students at Tokyo University of the Arts.

The purpose of this exhibition is to present new contexts to various values of today’s ever-changing world from each curator’s point of view, and to gain new knowledge from viewer’s diverse responses.

As the situation of the world is changing every moment due to coronavirus. In response to this situation, this exhibition will be held online instead of an actual physical space. With this new exhibition format that can reach to audience even under situations of social distancing, we hope to provide opportunities for more people to view the artworks and think about a better future.



Every day, we live in our own narratives that constitute to what we call as “reality.  Although this reality appears to manifest itself before us as a single story, countless of other narratives spread out in the background to our chosen paths. This exhibition, “Alter-narratives” which will be presented in an online platform with various mediums such as paintings, images, and installations, were originally plan to for Chinretsukan, the University Museum at Tokyo University of the Arts. We would like to invite you to discover possible alternate realities in this exhibition.

Through reorganizing the stories of past, present, and future that unfold the various possibilities of “reality” in this exhibition, we hope you can imagine a different world that we may live and attempt to confront the future with critical thinking.



■An online exhibition by five curators
