Tokyo Wonder Site, New Art and Culture in the Heart of Tokyo

I was determined to find a new place-space-site to share for this edition of Tokyo Thursdays.

The first few catches did not satisfy me so I soldiered on until I found Tokyo Wonder Site by way of a current exhibit they are offering titled Telling of Sea, Telling of Painter featuring the work of Toru Kuwakubo.


Tokyo Wonder Site (TWS) is more than an art center. It also faciliates international cultural exchanges.

They have 3 facilities with 3 objectives laid out below:

"Providing a temporary home not only for artists, but people working in creative fields such as design, music and architecture as well, as part of our Creator-in-Residence Program, situated in the Aoyama district in central Tokyo, know for its fashion and creative scene.TWS Aoyama is a large facility with 16 rooms for accommodations and 5 studios, and develops new programs in close cooperation with TWS Hongo dedicated to supporting emerging artists in their early careers and TWS Sibuya, which serves as a venue for exhibiting the works of more established, international artist."

'Telling of Sea' exhibit is opened to the public at Tokyo Wonder Site Shibuya until September 26, 2010 (except on September 13 and 21) from 11AM to 7 PM.

Admission to this show is Free.
