WHAT CAFE, Warehouse TERRADA’s Art Gallery Cafe, Holds WHAT CAFE EXHIBITION -Unlimited-
WHAT CAFE, an art gallery cafe operated by Warehouse TERRADA will have an exhibition WHAT CAFE EXHIBITION -Unlimited- from July 31st, 2021 (Sat) until August 29th (Sun).
WHAT CAFE is a space for promoting art and culture that aims to support up-and-coming artists in the industry. This art space is a combination of a gallery and a cafe, boasting a floor space of 800 square meters (or around 8,611 square feet). Visitors can enjoy meals and drinks while appreciating and purchasing artworks by up-and-coming artists proactive in the Japanese art industry.
In this exhibition, around 100 artworks by 11 young and talented artists in diverse genres will be featured based on the concept “unlimited.” On display will be street art and pop art which are not only vivid in colorations but also include social backgrounds and new generational insight, and acrylic paintings and Japanese paintings expressing the energy of the universe and nature. WHAT CAFE offers an occasion for visitors to discover their own style of enjoying art, while encountering the artists’ perspective of the world, strength beyond fixed ideas, and identities as an individual.
Mainly focusing on the storage of artworks, we have been developing a wide range of art related businesses including artwork restoration, packing, transportation, and exhibitions to pass on the passion of artists and the intrinsic value of art to future generations. Through running facilities that promote art and culture, such as the art materials lab PIGMENT TOKYO and TERRADA ART COMPLEX, Japan’s largest gallery complex, Warehouse TERRADA has been working to turn Tennoz into a major center for the arts. Going forward, our goal is to create exhibition spaces that not only serve the main stakeholders of contemporary art such as artists, collectors and galleries, but that also open up contemporary artworks to broader fan bases and help revitalize the market for art in Japan.

[About WHAT CAFE]
WHAT CAFE is an art spot that regularly displays dozens of contemporary art pieces created by artists who represent the future of Japan’s art industry. By replacing all art pieces at the end of each event, we offer many artists the opportunity to display and sell their artworks, and provide visitors the opportunity to regularly encounter new art. To give as many artists as possible the opportunity to establish themselves, we will also be calling for submissions via our official website, with selected submissions being exhibited. We also hold workshops and events related to the works displayed, and meet-and-greets for art fans. The cafe offers visitors a unique way to experience art with all five senses. And, of course, everyone can enjoy food and drinks sold in the cafe space while surrounded by art.
