On March 31, 2017, we will open Gallery 3, a new space to both commemorate the 10th anniversary of 21_21 DESIGN SIGHT, and to anticipate the future.
21_21 DESIGN SIGHT opened in March 2007, as a venue to think about everyday things and events and a variety of matters related to our daily lives, and to create various proposals and communicate numerous discoveries to the world through design. We have held various programs to date, including 34 exhibitions, which have been visited by a large number of people.
In March this year, we will mark our 10th anniversary. In order to develop the purpose of the activities we have pursued since our opening, we will open a new base for our activities, "Gallery 3."
Gallery 3 follows on from the existing Gallery 1 and Gallery 2 (the two exhibition spaces in the basement of the building). In Gallery 3, along with opening it to the general public, a variety of programs including exhibits, events, and workshops will be jointly realized through close collaboration with the people involved in design and also companies and educational, research, and cultural institutions in various countries.
This spring, as the opening program for Gallery 3, we are planning a number of programs that consider design, life, and the future of society, while looking on our ten years of activities.
Treasuring the journey we have experienced from our opening in 2007 to today and looking ahead, 21_21 DESIGN SIGHT will continue its activities to redirect our eyes even more broadly to our environs from the design point of view.
