Self Matsuri (Self Festival)

Asahi Art Festival 2014


The festival will take place in the 100 year-old Shinsekai Market in Osaka. Empty shop spaces will be used for exhibiting artworks, decorating arcade, and doing parades.  We will work together with market people to energize the local community. 



Self Matsuri Executive Committee


This project can be a model case that shopping arcades are used for artistic expressions to energize the community. Artists will use vacant spaces where has no tenant in the street. They will create their own unique art representing OSAKA. Town/Community becomes a kind of art pieces as the festival is a communication and open performance. We will invite a large variety of participants. This new approach to create and communicate with the local people and shop owners in the market will energize our community.
