Over the years Tokyo Wonder Site has worked together with numerous art universities throughout Japan, including Kyoto University of Art and Design and the Institute of Advanced Media Arts and Sciences (IAMAS), to host exhibitions that introduce emerging artists. This particular project will be jointly conducted by Japanese and French university students and researchers through the cooperation of Tokyo University of Arts, Musashino Art University and école supérieure des beaux-arts de Nantes Métropole ESBAMN.


The program will be divided into three major parts. In the first term, participants, including spectators, will take part in a reference show that serves the purpose of sharing the program's central theme. During the second term the participants will take part in lectures and workshops in which students and researchers conduct research together. The program will then culminate in the third term, when the students will hold a final show to exhibit the fruit of their efforts. The project will then continue on in March in the French city of Nantes.
