Press Release First Edition of ’Shibuya Station Exhibition'
(September 12, 2018) – Contemporary Art Station, the platform that facilitates both emerging and established artists to display their works in public, is pleased to announce the first edition of ’Shibuya Station Exhibition'. The exhibition will turn the Tokyo based underground railway station into an art exhibition, and welcomes artists to participate by sending in their proposals. The curation process is currently on, and the show is limited to 42 artists.
The ’Shibuya Station Exhibition' offers a great opportunity for artists to showcase their works in front of an estimated 2.4 million commuters each day for a week. The posters will be on display at the tube station from March 5 to March 11, 2019. The exhibits will be located near the ceramic mural ‘Kira Kira Shibuya’ by Koji Kinutani, created in 2008.
The exhibition will be an amazing marketing opportunity for all artists, since its duration coincides with the Tokyo Fair Period (between March 7-10, 2019), which attracts thousands of art lovers, collectors and gallerists to the station while on their way to the Fair.
Shibuya Station is located in Shibuya, Tokyo, and handles on average 2.4 million passengers on weekdays as per 2014 data. This makes it the fourth busiest commuter rail station in Japan and the world. The station connects the center of the city and suburbs to the south and west regions.
Contemporary Art Station, based in London and Tokyo, aims to make it easy and affordable for artists to bring their works to the big-scale public through installations and exhibitions. The team offers pre-production services, poster printing using latest digital technologies, professional installation work, photography in situ, online features of artists participating in exhibitions, updates on social media with artists’ contact details, zero-commission sales during exhibitions, and solo exhibitions.
