Mochikon exhibition” in which anyone can bring in their artwork and display them, released artwork, symposium, and film screening. On the last day between 4:00pm-4:30pm, there will be a “Mochikon meeting” in which each artist will show off their artworks for the “Art brut? Mochikon exhibition”, will will connect to supporting future artwork activities and excavation of artworks and artists.
