After Hours

After Hours was a 4-day-meeting co-organized by A.I.T. (Tokyo) and Samuso (Seoul) in parallel with Yokohama Triennale on New Institutionalism. Hu Fang spoke on the first day.

BizArt in Yokohama

Fancy shop space in Koganecho Bazzaar to replace the spot previously frequented by prostitutes.


Arrived in Yokohama on September 10 and had the evening free. Went with Hitomi to the opening of the Akasaka Art Flower 08 in an abandoned primary school. Curated by Kenji Kubota, it cost hugh amount of money to renovate the premises up to basic standard before they could put any art in it.

I met Tsuyoshi Ozawa three years ago and saw him again tonight. He made this kids' wonderland.
