The “Misemono-Yatai” is a mobile gallery for contemporary art in the public space. A hybrid between the traditional vehicle of a Japanese street vendor and a European cabinet of curiosities, it provides exhibition space for small two- and three-dimensional works by young Japanese and German artists. In close collaboration with local art institutions, it will be exhibited in several Japanese cities and later in Germany.
This project aims to playfully challenge rules and rituals of the art world, to facilitate exchange between two very distinct art scenes and cultures, and to help art institutions open up towards their local communities. Broadly speaking, to get people exited about contemporary art — through unconventional exhibitions and events.
