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.
