The present exhibition showcases Erlich’s works created over 25 years of his career, most of which are on display for the first time in the country.
The Tokyo exhibition, the largest ever devoted to the artist, will be an excellent occasion not only to explore the magic of his art that challenges our perceptions, preoccupations and preconceptions.
It is also a not-to-miss exhibition of contemporary art, full of fun, to interact with the exhibits and become part of them (take selfies with them).
