Obon Night 2023 is a mushroom show.

This year, we are pleased to present a group exhibition by three artists who create works related to mushrooms.

The keyword of the exhibition is "mushrooms.

The Australian and Japanese artists, attracted by this word, have    launched    this    project with  the  concept  of  using  this  exhibition as a starting point and expanding the number of locations and   artists   in   the   future, spreading around the world like a mycelium.

We plan to hold exhibitions in Tokyo next year and in Australia the year after next.

This year, the first exhibition will be held at Naoki Koide's parents' home, Zaisyohouse Koide, in conjunction with "Obon Night.

Obon is a traditional Japanese seasonal event in which ancestors and deceased family members return to the homes of their living family members to spend time together during the Obon period.

This year's Obon Night is to celebrate with mushrooms along with Obon.

What kind of new scenery will the combination of Obon and mushrooms present to us?
