The opening ceremony.
The exhibition “Wind Rises from the Sea” explores the unknown of the future through exploration and practice by teachers of the Fine Arts College, with a strong desire for innovation on ideals of the future.
It is also deeply rooted in a strong sense of culture, from which it gains strength and resources constituting an invisible but perceptible, spiritual logic. It is also these free and open expressions that allow audiences to intuitively feel their independence, innovation and individualism.
