Art Exhibition based on Outdoor Festival Theme, “Festival View DEAL Exhibition,” taking place at Basement GINZA


An exhibition based on an outdoor festival theme titled “Festival View DEAL Exhibition” will take place at “Basement GINZA,” a unique space to promote culture.

DEAL, a free magazine with a backbone in counter-culture starting with outdoor festivals, is the host for this exhibition. Photographers who have captured memorable scenes at festivals, and also artists who have done live paintings are participating in this exhibition. With FUJI ROCK FESTIVAL 2018 in the horizon, this exhibition is sure to raise expecations and uplift feelings for festival fans everywhere. There will be an opening exhibition the day before the official opening day on July 13th with the participating artists, as well as a talk show event between the artists on July 16th. This is a fantastic opportunity to see Gravityfree at a talk show event, since it is rare to see this artist duo speaking in front of a live audience.
