The high-tech Japanese kitsch was embraced by a Western world passing through a period of growing interest in sushi, economic miracles, and things Japanese in general,
G Gallery Exhibition space Role of Curator Site specific Redefine exhibition space CHASING… Stay with Art is one of a growing number of exhibitions which addresses this issue, attempting to bridge the gap between art and life by bringing art back into the spaces of everyday life—of leisure, of work, of love, of sex, of government, of worship. Anything, that is, but the neutral space of the white cube. This exhibition, which took place at the T’Point Hotel in Osaka, was the second experiment in a series of exhibitions organized by Megumi Matsuo, a figure associated with Dumb Type who established one of the first artist-run spaces in Japan—the Voice Gallery in Kyoto. Outside of the museum establishment, this project not only created new relationships between art and the viewing public, but also allowed works previously censored by museums (Morimura’s Black Marilyn and Kuwajima’s The Life) to be shown by finding private sponsors unhampered by nervous boards and city politicians. For three days, each participating artist was given a room in the T’Point, a hotel whose interior was designed by SAGESHIMA Seiji. They were each given the liberty to create their own site-specific installation—to make a total environment in which the audience could sit, relax, talk to their friends, be a voyeur, steal a kiss, or speculate about what it would be like to do so.

Am I questioning the dominance of Europe in establishing what is fine art? Am I meant to draw attention to values themselves? Am I about global hybridisation of cultures? Am I stating sexual diversity or child abuse? The audience is keep guessing.
