A special event at Tokyo's Museum of Contemporary Art will look at the works of Mark Manders (1968-), a Dutch artist known for his unique contemporary sculptures that manage to strike a balance between calmness and unease.

Tokyo's Museum of Contemporary Art is located 9 minutes on foot from the B2 exit of Kiyosumi-shirakawa Station on the Tokyo Metro Hanzomon Line, or 15 minutes on foot from Kiba Station on the Tozai Line.
