Nama Ato: Japanese Outsider Art

3 - 29 August 2016, Chichester

Nama Ato: Japanese Outsider Art is a touring exhibition of three Japanese visual artists whose work is being presented in the UK for the first time. Unlimited, in partnership with Outside In and Pallant House Gallery, will tour this work to four venues.


Koji Nishioka’s intuitive musical scores are related to existing pieces of music, but which a pianist may not easily read; Makoto Okawa’s colourful drawings and felt ‘Makoot’ dolls, born from his imagination, depict happiness, sadness and pleasure; and Yasuyuki Ueno’s work shows a world where preconceived notions of female characters and fashion objects are challenged. All of the artists have learning disabilities, and are supported by Atelier Corners in Osaka, Japan - an organisation supporting disabled artists to realise their potential and express their individualities.
