From now I’m going to be researching art spaces around Southeast Asia for three months.
Born in 1976, Tokyo. Director of Art Center Ongoing. Graduated from Musashino Art University in 2001, then achieved a master’s degree of Graduate School of Interdisciplinary Information Studies, The University of Tokyo. He has held a large exhibition every year from 2002 to 2006, building a unique network of artists who have publicly applied for the exhibition. Base on this network, he launched Art Center Ongoing, an art complex, at Kichijoji in 2008. He also serves as Chief Director of TERATOTERA, an art project, being actively involved in the programs deployed mainly in the area between JR Koenji station and Kokubunji station.

Finally, this is the last post about day one in Manila.
I’m starting to worry about whether I will be able to cover all of my destinations at such a pace, but anyway I’ll try to keep going.
Firstly, I have to keep reminding myself of the fact that “I am not on vacation.”
My Manila research will start from today.
Continuing from the 13th of January,
After lunch, I call into Green Papaya Art Projects to meet a legendary someone.
Today, I’m heading to the headquarters of 98B COLLABoratory, the organization that is hosting this Manila visit.
