  • An interesting Sono Sion solo exhibition re: his THE WHISPERING STAR. Until 7/31
  • Not much going on. Gallery is more accurate than museum.
  • Small but good value and creative use of the space for a cool exhibit by French video artist JR
  • Do visit. They also have a nice design and book store.
  • bad reception!
