What's goin' down, Feb 2010 • 何が起こってんの、2010年2月

Must Sees
Katrin Paul @ the White Chamber, Creative Center Osaka (Feb.11~Mar.7)
We met Katrin when she joined us for our Art Tour last year for Art Osaka 2009. She had been living in Tokyo for a very long time and had just come to Osaka, and discovered FLAG. With this exhibition at the White Chamber, it's a great chance to go and check out CCO and Katrin's works at the same time.

Monochrome @ Athens Gallery (bookstore 5F) (~Feb 10)
Flier arrived just in time for February. 81 LAB—Representing some of the better photography magazines in Osaka is putting this show on; 5 photographers present their monotone photos. Yuuji Nakagawa, Hiroshi Yamauchi, Miki Jyou, Ryuuhei Yokoyama and Yuuko Tada.

Keep an eye on these information sites:
Shift's Osaka City Guide, with 52 locations, brief reviews and access information.

The semi-famous BMC "Building Mania Cafe", a group of 5 people absolutely nuts about discovering and tracking retro buildings in Osaka city. Specifically targeting 50's~70's.

A great lad called Fukuda san, with his awesome blog "Eetoko ikouka • Let's go somewhere good". He wanders around eating, drinking, digesting, then eating and drinking more and scribbling notes.
