About

The Project

Kyoto, Japan's best preserved city and thriving centre of contemporary art.

We are looking to raise $6000 to help with the printing of a publication for an upcoming exhibition called Kyoto Studio, a show of local artists working in and around the city of Kyoto.

Every year in February, Kyoto artists have held an open studio exhibition where people can visit and see how they make work.  One of the amazing things about Kyoto is the wealth of unique spaces available for artists to work in. This year, we at Gallery @KCUA have decided to invite the studios and artists involved in previous years to show their work at an exhibition called Kyoto Studio

We are trying to raise funds for a 300 page bilingual publication that works as both a catalog for the exhibition itself and as a guide book for contemporary art in Kyoto. We hope to really show what the city's art scene is like, beyond the cliches of shrines and temples!

The Catalogue

The publication, designed by Mimasu from InText, is going to be of the highest quality by local printers.

It will be divided into several sections. First, there will a map of all the important art galleries, studios and museums in and around Kyoto. Next, there will be a section to highlight the activities of each of the 16 studios, each studio having a page devoted to them. After that, the artists and their work will be introduced individually with a double spread each in high quality colour. We will also include original interviews and essays from leading critics, curators, gallerists, and artists, including 2010 Cannes Film Festival Palme d'Or winner Apichatpong Weerasethakul, Kathy Grayson of The Hole Gallery, NY, and curator Yukie Kamiya of Hiroshima City Museum of Contemporary Art

About us

@KCUA is a non-profit gallery space affiliated with Kyoto City University of Art, the oldest art school in japan. We host art events, workshops, exhibitions and are right at the centre of Kyoto's art scene. 

Located in downtown Kyoto, @KCUA is an impressive and modern two story building with five large galleries and communal spaces for workshops.

Risks and challenges

This is a very well thought-out project and we feel confident that there will be no major problems. We have such a broad range of highly talented individuals in our team and we are sure that we are able to overcome any challenges thrown at us. The main problem is going to be licking stamps and posting catalogs to our kind donors!
