This event has ended.

Usagi NY is pleased to present our first exhibition, Infinite White(Mugen no Shiro). In his book “Shiro (White)”, Japanese designer Kenya Hara regards “white” not only as simply a color, but also as whiteness of paper, which is a trigger that inspires creativity, and emptiness as physical and mental space that pulls out the force of communication.

Inspired by his unique concept of white, which has been developed alongside Japanese aesthetics and sensitivity, the exhibition explores the unknown possibilities of the perception of white with various media and techniques, which includes paintings, drawings, photography, architecture, sculpture, virtual reality image with Oculus Rift, and mixed media such as books and clothing.
