KIKA GALLERY is pleased to announce the exhibition "Crying Children Party" by Crying Children Party member rajiogoogoo.
The Crying Children Party was unexpectedly formed in May 2021. Their aim is to simply create a world where people can 'cry freely'. The somewhat comical Japanese language may at first make some people hesitant, but when you hear the "Crying Children Party" song (there are three versions in total!), you will realise that the humour of the song has an addictive quality to it. This exhibition will attempt to open the "Crying Children Party's Office" to all visitors. Where we will ponder, what exactly is the Crying Children Party fighting against, with the words 'must win' displayed inside of the gallery? Party members and staff are regularly present in the KIKA GALLERY, waiting for your visit.
