Concept of YAKATA YUSAI

Under the theme "bringing the user and creator closer together", Gallery Yakata Yusai, with the cooperation of artists, enthusiastically adopt art pieces with usability into the living space.

Creation of art pieces has since long been considered merely as artistic expressions. Now imposing them a new restraint of "Arranging it in the living space", it is worth seeing how the participating artists to their utmost challenge to the project. In their creations we should encounter great fascinations, which the industrial goods cannot offer us.

Possessing a piece or more of such an art, a collaborative production, so to say, of artists and users, one's daily life should certainly be more fulfilling.

We hold annually 8 to 9 exhibitions in our gallery, inviting artists mainly of art & crafts to create their own world of their art pieces. Unlike any solo exhibitions elsewhere, the space provided here is none merely an empty one but an absolute living space. Here you will see striking challenges of numerous artists to the art space coexisting with daily life. Sincerely hoping the world of Japanese modern crafts eventually and remarkably expand and develop.
