Photomural Exhibition looking for a suitable site

Kurashiki Photomural Exhibition looking for a suitable site

A slice of Japanese photographical talent currently hangs in the Christchurch Polytechnic Administration Building’s atrium, and Christchurch residents may yet be able to see the whole 2006 exhibition if a suitable home can be found.

The exhibition has been brought to Christchurch by the Kurashiki Cultural Promotion Foundation of Kurashiki City Hall, with support from the Christchurch/Kurashiki Sister City Committee.

The 10 images, which come from a collection of 30, have been converted into 2m x 1.9m photomurals and were selected from a local competition in Kurashiki, Japan.

If a suitable location can be found, the Christchurch/Kurashiki Sister City Committee will look at bringing the whole exhibition to Christchurch in 2006. The committee is currently approaching suburban shopping malls, a venue that has proved successful in Japan.
