Yojo-Han Art Center, Nagoya Aichi, Japan
Chojamachi Transit Building will be open in Mid-April 2012 in 2-chome Nishiki, Nakaku Nagoya, Aichi, JAPAN. The former fabric warehouse building is freshly renovated to have a cafe, a bookshop, a flower shop, art studios, a gallery, art and design firm, architectural firm, and an art center in one place. It is going to be a bustling place to have a good time.
In a very small room on the 4th floor of the building, [Yojo-Han] Art Center is founded by four artists (Ko Yamada, Takuji Okagawa, Jin Murata, Hirotaka Yasuhara) The art center will handle curations, exhibitions, art workshops and classes, live events, ustream broadcasting, and maybe partying etc. The concept of the center would be "what could possibly be done in this small space like this?". Our main activity would be wondering how you can expand this tiny room to the universe conceptually.
