Gallery – Contemporary Art Space Osaka

Contemporary Art Space Osaka or CASO as it is known is one of Japan’s largest art spaces. A restored warehouse building with masses of space and high ceilings, the gallery provides the perfect place for large scale paintings and installation. Definitely worth the train ride out to Osaka harbor. There are currently two exhibitions on show. One is by a collective of local artists. I spoke with Arimichi Iwasawa, one of the artists about their approach. He said they approach painting in a different way. Usually group exhibitions are collaborated after the work has been produced. He said they have a systematic approach where by a space is chosen and the artists plan their work as a group.
