This exhibition examines the motive behind each artist's art-making process.

Each artist will display a statement about their relationship with art.

Participating artists are the members of Japanese Artists Association of New York, Inc. (JAANY) and their artist friends.

The Japanese Artists Association of New York, Inc. (JAANY) is an organization that was founded in 1972 as a non-profit organization and maintains a membership of approximately fifty artists.
