WAITINGROOM was founded in Tokyo in 2010, with the mission to promote and support the cutting-edge contemporary art across various media. The gallery works with young and emerging artists who seeks the balance between two diverse aspects with their own distinctive perspective and expression. Our attention focused on human being’s presence in the post-industrial society which covers a wide range from social engagement, the relationship with the nature, cultural heritage, to the fantasies we sometimes dream of to keep our faith in the world etc.. The artists we work with often arouse echo universally and are active with exhibitions both in Japan and abroad at galleries, museums, biennales, triennales etc..
Meantime, WAITINGROOM supports artistic creation through diverse programs including lectures and workshops, which always stimulates dynamic discussion. Through building a positive relationship between artists and audiences, WAITINGROOM aims to share the inspiration with the world.
