2013. 5. 01 Wed. - 2013. 5. 14 Tue.

    Commemorating the 2nd anniversary of the opening of JR Osaka Mitsukoshi Isetan.
    The OSAKA DREAMS," a gathering of contemporary art galleries in Osaka, was held in May 2011 to celebrate the grand opening of the JR Osaka Mitsukoshi Isetan.
    Following last year's and the year before, we will hold the third installment of this event.
    Galleries with a connection to Osaka will gather at this art spot in the center of Osaka, which is booming with the rush of urban development.
    JR Osaka Mitsukoshi Isetan is also celebrating the second anniversary of its opening, and the Umeda area of Osaka will become even more exciting.
    The 6th floor Art Liberation Zone and the 3rd floor DMO ARTS art spaces in the store and OSAKA ART COMPLEX (Tezukayama Gallery, Tenjensha, YOD Gallery, Yoshimi Arts), a group of galleries leading the Osaka art scene, will collaborate to present a selection of their best artists. The selection of the best artists from each of these galleries will be presented.
    The artists will perform together with rich individuality across genres.
    From Osaka to the world.
    JR Osaka Mitsukoshi Isetan, as the hub of Osaka's contemporary art scene, will introduce the latest "OSAKAN ART" to a variety of customers. Please look forward to it.
