Back to Square One

10:00am – 7:00pm
Free

UltraSuperNew Gallery in Harajuku presents “Back to Square One,” an artist group show eyeing the right and wrong angles of the perfect parallelogram. Every year, the gallery challenges artists to ponder an incredibly vague, yet oddly specific subject, and from Friday, October 25th until October 31st, it’s the square. This exhibition features 12 artists who will consider the square’s many definitions, and what resonates with them the most.

The square is a shape commonly known to be plain with four equal straight sides and four right angles, but nothing about the concept is so ordinary. The USN artists thought outside the box – literally, experimenting with various mediums, such as delicate paintings, surrealist illustrations, architectural designs, and unconventional digital creations.
