Notice to All Visitors

Anti-Virus Initiatives for the "Listening: Resonant Worlds" Exhibition

As part of efforts to avoid further spread of COVID-19, Arts Maebashi has decided to take the following measures in hosting this exhibition.

We have created a special website (this website) as an exhibition catalog launching concurrently with the opening date so that those who cannot travel to Arts Maebashi will be able to learn more about the content of the exhibition.

Visitors can experience the works of art by reading QR codes. To avoid contagion, please bring your own smartphones and earplugs or headsets if possible.-For those who do not bring their own, some sets are available.

Advance reservation is NOT necessary but the number of people in each gallery space will be limited. For works that will be screened in Maebashi Cinema House, a reduced number of seats will be available in order to maintain social distancing.
