Accidentally Wes Anderson (@accidentallywesanderson) on Instagram is a community with over 1.8 million followers (and growing). The account started with a dream of visiting places around the world that resemble spots, objects, and buildings in movies directed by Wes Anderson. These photos are usually symmetrical, have a harmonious color palette, and are filled with quirky patterns.
For Accidentally Wes Anderson (AWA)’s first public exhibition in Japan, 300 photographs demonstrating the AWA aesthetic are on show. Visitors can go on a trip of their own from country to country reading stories from the photographers and enjoying the perfect compositions of the pictures.
There will also be prints on sale and other merchandise, as well as a collaboration with the nearby WHAT CAFE that includes brightly colored cream soda drinks (¥900) and pastel ice cream (¥700).
Tickets cost ¥1,800 before April 5 (sales have ended) and ¥2,000 online or in-person. They can be bought from a number of vendors. Full list here.
