A Message of Support from the Director
For the STARS exhibition, our goal was not only to show the representative works of six superstars, but to show how they have grown in international recognition, and what their respective career paths have been like - hence our catchphrase: “STARS ARE NOT MADE OVERNIGHT!” Amidst the global COVID-19 pandemic that has caused us to slow down and brought about this great uncertainty as to what the future holds, we believe that the careers and lives of these six artists who have devoted many long years and now enjoy global acclaim for their work will provide valuable clues for the way we live life to the students who come to visit. We hope that you will feel the power of these artists as to get inspired and recharged by your experience here.
