New Tokyo “art exhibition” showcasing women’s thighs just in time for Christmas.
“Art” can come in many shapes and forms – this time it is coming to us in the shape of women’s legs, or photography of women’s thighs to be exact.

The World of Thigh Photography 2016-2017 exhibition, which is being organized by a company called BACON Co. Ltd. (no that’s not a joke), is the latest instalment from photographer Yuria to be held at the TODAYS GALLERY STUDIO in Asakusabashi, Tokyo. Yuria’s previous exhibition, which was displayed in May, was a general celebration of women’s legs and thighs.

▼ Thigh art in school hours
This latest thigh exhibition aims to “sublimate the pursuit of fetishes into art” – sublimate meaning to divert or modify into a culturally higher or socially more acceptable activity. There will be over “500 art pieces” displayed, including photography taken specifically for this event.
▼ There will also be a special exhibition space with the theme of “hot springs”.
The World of Thigh Photography 2016-2017 official website says the special “hot spring” gallery, which is setup in a space that looks like a hot springs hotel, will “make you feel like you’re in a hot-spring together” and you can enjoy an “abnormal experience” by “getting warm with art”.
Patrons will also have the chance to purchase a wide variety of “thigh art” goods. Get your very own thigh art iPhone case or perhaps a thigh art bookmark is more your style.
▼ Purchase your own thigh art limited goods
If that’s not enough you can also check out Yuria’s earlier works here from 2015. Japan obviously has a strong affinity with legs, with Nice Knee High Socks Day 2016 being vigorously celebrated just recently on November 28. Entry into The World of Thigh Photography 2016-2017 exhibition will set you back 500 yen or about US$4.45.
