Comments from Tomio Koyama (Tomio Koyama Gallery), Director of CADAN :

We will open “CADAN YURAKUCHO” on the first floor of the Yurakucho Building so that people may learn more about the activities of a contemporary art gallery. The space will open In the middle of the Marunouchi and Yurakucho office district – an exciting place where visitors may enjoy contemporary art, feel free to enter from the street and learn about an artist’s ideas and thoughts, the seriousness of production and their courage to try new things, I greatly appreciate people visiting the space.
