What's goin' down, Nov 2009 • 何が起こってんの、2009年11月

Must Sees
Gallerism @ Genbi Centre, (2nd~14th)
When you think Osaka, you don't really think art. Gallerism is one event to shatter this preconception! Osaka has swaths of gallery areas and numerous established galleries, and Gallerism is one event bringing them all together: Amano Garo, Gallery AO, Gallery Haku, Gallery H.O.T, Gallery Wks. Cubic Gallery, Bangarou, and more! But it's not about the galleries, it's about creating a good atmosphere in Osaka, and supporting young artists like Kyoto NAKAMURA, Masaki TAMURA, Takao KANO, Yusaku MIYAHARA, Ayami ITO, Akiko KAWABATA, Tomoyuki NAKAMOTO, and more more more!
Get in there! Get down to Gallerism!

Personal Circles @ iTohen, (4th~15th)
Awesome mix of sketches from Artists all over the world. Participants of different academic backgrounds (illustration, fine art, etc.) present sketches of objects and items in their own personal circles. Screen printing workshop @ OOO on the 7th and workshop with Ros Siu, Canadian and participating artist on the 8th @ iTohen.

Hey Duncan!

Cool info and I am looking forward to seeing the FLAG site up, but might want to check out that first link to gallerism again.
