Significance of Art cannot be measured only by the value of the work itself.
Art is consisted of various ideas and skills gained in the process of artists’ activities,
and even if the work has not met the chance to be realized as visible product, artists’ idea already has great potential to be the keystone marking the significance of Art.
ArtTank consider the activities and expressions of contemporary artists as the exposure of thoughts on our living situation, social issues, and challenges toward the future.
We are seeking to create new possibilities for artists' activities to meet audience in our daily situation.
ArtTank is a storage for artists’ creative ideas,
is an Artists’ Studio to open their possibilities together
to realize their diverse activities.
ArtTank organizes art projects and exhibitions. Through the activities, we are creating a place for audience to meet artists activities, reflecting the society and situation of the world around us.
