Inujima "Art House Project"
This project was developed by the art director Yuko Hasegawa and the architect Kazuyo Sejima for the village on Inujima. Three galleries, F-Art House, S-Art House, and I-Art House, designed for special displays, and a rest area were first opened on the island in 2010. In 2013, with the opening of two new galleries, A-Art House and C-Art House, works by five artists will be shown at each of the facilities and elsewhere around the village. The galleries, scattered around the area, are constructed out of a diverse range of materials including roofing tiles and other components of old houses, clear acrylic, and aluminum that reflects the landscape.
