"Down Syndrome: The Family View"
Its new exhibition, “Down Syndrome: The Family View – Shifting Perspectives –”, which opens on Friday, March 21, 2014 (national holiday), will showcase photographic works featuring children and adults with Down syndrome, taken from an affectionate perspective. Having already achieved critical acclaim in seven countries, the exhibition makes its Japan premier on March 21, World Down Syndrome Day. Talk sessions, concerts and other related events are planned at the gallery during the exhibition, and we hope that it will offer an opportunity for visitors to become familiar with the feelings of people with the syndrome and those that are close to them. We sincerely encourage you to come and view the exhibition.
