As the word "TANA" stands for "shelf" in Japanese, TANA Gallery Bookshelf is a gallery located inside a bookshelf in a small art studio/workshop Bigakko, one of the most liberal and least snobby art spaces in Tokyo, in the midst of Kanda district known as the town of publishers and second-hand bookstores.
Physically just a tiny cabinet,TANA Gallery Bookshelf is a social fabric interwoven with artists, visitors, and all the surrounding vernacularities, as an homage to Henri Lefebvre's word "new social relations demand a new space, and vice-versa" with an actual spatial and relational answer.
As an independent philosopher-run art space TANA Gallery Bookshelf completely abandons commercialism, including sensational hypes and pedantic critiques, yet commerce is still possible without such sickening chores. Feel free to be our valued philanthrocapitalist by paying as much as you wish, anytime for any reason.
14:00 - 21:00 Mon-Fri
TANA is normally unmanned except special events (e.g., opening reception). If you want gallery staff attendance, please come to the opening or contact us in advance.
