Sagacho Exhibit Space 1983-2000 Fixed-Point Observation Of Contemporary Art
Since opening its doors in November 1983 and until its closure in 2000, the Sagacho Exhibit Space hosted more than 100 exhibitions. The brainchild of Kazuko Koike, it was Japan’s first experimental exhibition space to transcend traditional genres of art, design, fashion, architecture, and photography. On the edge of the city, in a 1920s warehouse that once housed the central rice market of Japan, Sagacho offered artists an unparalleled space. Many of the exhibitions were site-specific, inspired by the high ceilings and open floor plan. This book traces the trajectory of Sagacho and Japanese contemporary art, covering 50 works by 25 artists exhibited during its years of operation.
