Chim⭡Pom: Happy Spring

Feb 18 - May 29

This will be the first-ever retrospective of Chim↑Pom, bringing together major works from the start of their seventeen-year career to more recent years, plus new work produced for this exhibition. Displays will be divided by theme – e.g., cities and publicness, Hiroshima, the Great East-Japan Earthquake – highlighting matters consistently addressed by the artists, while examining the collective’s oeuvre in its entirety. Dynamic exhibition design, rich in creative ingenuity, will also assist in shedding new light on the ever-surprising world of Chim↑Pom.

With seemingly uncanny foresight, Chim↑Pom has addressed in a number of their previous works the social issues of infection and discrimination against people with contagious diseases, and of bias, contamination and borders, all thrown into sharp relief by the COVID-19 pandemic. Now more than ever perhaps is the time to observe their thought-provoking knack for raising issues pertinent to the zeitgeist.
