In October Art Brut Tachikawa 2018 will exhibit roughly 60 works at the special room and Gallery Square at Isetan Tachikawa. This year marks the fourth time this event has been held. Art Brut by people with disabilities exhibits the ultimate expression of creativity, filling the spectator with a sense of wonder. By bringing this stirring experience to a broader audience, Art Brut Tachikawa aims to create a deeper appreciation of the expressive capacities and limitless imaginative power in all of us. Over the period of the exhibition there will be performances by Takayuki Ayama, Munenori Tamagawa and Kouhei Hayashi.
The Executive Committee, a group of local residents, works with a wide variety of companies, organizations and individuals as well as government agencies, social welfare councils, and Isetan Tachikawa—all united in the Committee’s vision—to deliver Art Brut exhibitions. Through the Art Brut Tachikawa program, the Committee is determined to help people with disabilities become active members of society.


Art Brut Tachikawa Executive Committee
The Art Brut Tachikawa Executive Committee was created on February 1, 2015.
Aiming to bring “art brut” (“outsider art” created by untrained artists via self-taught or unique methods) to a wider audience, the Art Brut Tachikawa Executive Committee is a civic activity organization comprising members living and/or working in Tachikawa City.
The Committee comprises administrators (the Committee Chair, Committee Vice-Chair, Secretary-General, Accountant, and Accounting Auditor), committee members, and advisors.
Art Brut Tachikawa 2018 will feature works by artists with disabilities.
