"Compassionate Grounds: Ten Years on in Tohoku", an exhibition curated by Emily Wakeling, to be held at at Composite, Collingwood Arts Precinct, Melbourne, and Metro Arts, Brisbane. Masaharu Sato's "Calling" is also comprised in this exhibition at Composite.

Curated as a continuation of research in Japanese contemporary art, conducted from afar, Compassionate Grounds: Ten Years on in Tōhoku is an exhibition of screen-based works by several artists who, observing from a distance or working directly with survivors, focus on landscape as an expression for the social traumas still reverberating among the region’s survivors.
