Important news from our friend Takuya Sakaguchi, who has organized the LAFMS participation in this exciting art show:
ART OSAKA 2012 runs from 6th to 8th of July.
FUKUGAN GALLERY will use two hotel rooms in ART OSAKA 2012.

The LAFMS exhibition includes physical works created by Rick Potts, Joe Potts, Fredrik Nilsen, Vetza, Ace Farren Ford, Oblivia and Ju Suk Reet Meate.
