New Project: West Tenjin Art Centre @ AB88

The AB88 will produce a new important art project near future, "West Tenjin Art Centre" (Nishi-Tenjin Geijutsu Sentaa in Japanese) [WeTac].
* the name is draft.

[We-TAC] will be a contemporary art information center for visual art, film/video/movie art, performing art, literature, etc.
I do not need category, I have been longing a new art expression that cannot be explained by previous category.

Anyway this is the first step for ART CENTER PROJECT. The Museum City Project have been present lots of styled art-center-idea for more than 10 years.
But it is very hard to realize.
Then I will start this dream in my personal space.

In 2008, WeTac project will start as a preparing room at AB88 and have some lecture series about arts and culture.
