Makers of Taito: Drawings by Caroline Lavergne

1:00pm – 7:00pm

Explore the very small workspaces of the many handyworkers of Taito-ku, through the ink and watercolor sketches of Caroline Lavergne. A self-taught artist from Montreal, Lavergne uses sketching to gain an intimate understanding of a particular time and place. Her past work includes an illustrated book drawn on location in Istanbul and she is now using her pens and watercolors to explore the small workshops of Taitô-ku, Tokyo, as part of a two-month residency at Almost Perfect gallery. The exhibition is being held at the gallery with an opening party from 5pm – 9pm on Saturday 17th.

Please note the gallery is closed on Tuesday 20th.
