TANA Gallery Bookshelf is a gallery located inside a bookshelf, as the word "TANA" stands for the shelf in Japanese, in a small art studio/workshop Bigakko, one of the least snobby art spaces in Tokyo Kanda district known as the town of second-hand bookstores.
TANA Gallery Bookshelf, while being a tiny cabinet, is 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 spacial and relational answer.
TANA Gallery Bookshelf is an independent gallery totally indifferent to commercialism, such as sensational hypes or pedantic critiques, yet commerce is possible without commercialism. Please feel free to be philanthrocapitalist and pay as much as you want anytime for any reason.
14:00 - 21:00 Mon-Sat
TANA is normally unmanned except special events (i.e., opening reception). If you want gallery staff attendance, please come to the opening or contact us in advance.
