Echigo-Tsumari Archive：Collaboration with CIAN
As a related project to Echigo-Tsumari Art Center (tbc), this project aims to set up archiving of the regions and art in closed school (Shimizu elementary school) in Matsudai. Under the supervision by Tadashi Kawamata, CIAN collects data and archives them according to site-specific activities based upon art. This building aims to serves as a research center for art projects where intelligence of art projects across the world are gathered and shared.
During the Triennale 2012, approximately 30,000 books on contemporary art owned by Yusuke Nakahara who passed away in March 2011 will be open to the public coincide with an exhibition commemorating him.
