Whether shared picnic boxes or everyday lunch boxes, bento holds deep significance in our lives in Japan. This exhibition looks at Japan’s unique culture of “bento” and “eating” from the perspective of communication design, through works by contemporary artists. A see, hear, touch, and participate exhibition, fun for families and adults too.
