Families and art lovers can see the show at the former Municipal Bank building in Broad Street in Birmingham city centre.
Playing with light and shadow, Shun Ito also draws on his physical experience of gravity as a dancer to re-create the beauty of natural falling and spinning movements in his mechanical creations.
Visitors are being encouraged to become entranced by the complex rhythms and flickering lights of the artist's intricate machines - an assembly of metal frames, gears and drive systems - that create changing shapes in the exhibition space.
At the core of the art an installation is Cells, which features a large-scale mobile comprising 200 rotating steel rings and 30 electric light bulbs. It has been made by the artist in Birmingham.
Movement and light are at the centre of the family art exhibit
There will also be a live performance of In A Landscape from May 12 to 14 May by Kei Miyata, which combines sculpture, movement and hypnotic sounds played live by Ex Easter Island Head.
The events are supported by Arts Council England, Great Britain Sasakawa Foundation, Daiwa and IKON gallery in Birmingham.
