After going viral on social media this spring, this exhibition is coming this fall to Shibuya and lets you travel the world from the comfort of Shibuya
Boasting over 1.88 million followers, an Instagram community called "Accidentally Wes Anderson (AWA)" posts a variety of landscape photos that evoke the style of famous film director Wes Anderson. The name of this exhibition comes from this community, and it made its first appearance in Japan between April and May 2023 at the Warehouse TERRADA G1 (Tennozu, Tokyo). This initial Japanese iteration was a hit on social media, as it offered photogenic features that made people want to share their experiences online. Many visitors posted their comments on social media, with some feeling like they had traveled all over the world, and others noting that the exhibition had a unique approach that immerses the viewer within the photo image, and that the exhibition presented an exciting and captivating worldview.
With over 300 photos, this exhibition makes you feel like you are traveling through little-known places across the world. The landscapes strike you with an almost unbelievable surrealness while also featuring a strange somber quality at the same time—each photo has its own compelling story. Wes Anderson's works are characterized by their modern pastel colors, symmetrical compositions, and other details that can all be found in this nostalgic and photogenic exhibition. Many people have been unable to travel for some time, but these photos are sure to remind you of just how wonderful it is to go on a journey.
