Buster Keaton (1895 - 1966) is an actor, film director and senario writer who played an important role in the first half of 20th century together with Chales Chaplin and Harold Lloyd, so-called "three major comedy kings." In his silent films, he created lots of laughters by his humorous performances using his own body expressions without any stunt man. Katsumi Asaba, the exhibition director of "SENSE OF HUMOR" held in Gallery 1 & 2, is one of those whom was greately inspired by his work. Please enjoy the world of Keaton's film in Gallery 3, during the exhibition period.
Organized by: Mouvement, 21_21 DESIGN SIGHT
21_21 DESIGN SIGHT Gallery 3 is a presentation space dedicated to design, which develops collaborative programs with domestic and overseas corporations, which constitute one of the major bases of making things, as well as educational, research and cultural institutions. Through programs that inform the very present of design, here, we can think about our everyday life and future with a greater number of people, and make various proposals.
Through networks that continue to expand from the Gallery 3 as the hub, 21_21 DESIGN SIGHT will explore a multifaceted “design point of view” in future.
