The Sagacho Exhibit space was Japan’s first experimental exhibition space that transcended 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 to work in. Many of the exhibitions were site specific, inspired by the high ceilings and columnless space. It attracted attention from abroad, in a time when the global art scene gave rise to the Kusthalle in Germany and PS1 in New York. This book traces the trajectory of Sagacho and Japanese contemporary art, covering 50 works by 25 artists exhibited during its 17 years of operation.
