It can be said that Kanda is a place where the energy of the city and lives of people full of human warmth come to mix together, a place located in the center of Tokyo which while welcoming the possibilities of all kinds of culture and people, and scenery, has the power to bring about a new energy. In this exhibition, artists, photographers, and architects who felt attracted to "Kanda" will perceive it from various angles.

In photographer Masanori Ikeda's (YUKAI) "Kanda Portrait Project" where Kanda natives are his models, and in "Kanda Street Observation 2013" which will be orchestrated by artists and local residents, attention will be drawn to the people and city of Kanda from an everyday perspective. Architect Yoshiharu Tsukamoto (Atelier Bow-Wow) who presented "Made in Tokyo" in 1996, has formed a new team to construct "Urban Kandalogy". Emerging Korean artist, Seung Woo Back will stay in Kanda to produce and present new works from his "REESTABLISHING SHOT" series in which aerial views of the city will be combined in collages.

With a loving look toward the town and through observation of the city, please enjoy the creativity born out of the streets of Kanda, together with the bountiful appeal of its history, cuisine, and people.

Masanori Ikeda "Kanda Portrait Project"
From historic soba shops, celebrities of the Kanda Matsuri, owners of old book stores to young café entrepreneurs, Ikeda presents 40 portraits of locals from his ongoing series, each filled with the heart-warming essence of Kanda.
