A gallery for everyone that anyone can feel free to stop by, right next to Minato Mirai Station
Minato Mirai Gallery
This time, we visited Minato Mirai Gallery, which is a short walk from Minato Mirai Station on the Minato Mirai Line without getting wet in the rain. There are many cultural facilities nearby, such as Yokohama Minato Mirai Hall and Yokohama Museum of Art, and many art lovers will know about them! This blue pillar is the landmark.
A multipurpose gallery with a spacious feel set in an atrium filled with light. When I visited for this interview, an exhibition of selected calligraphy by the calligraphy organization Ryoun-kai was being held, and visitors were greeted by a variety of beautiful calligraphy mounted on hanging scrolls.
"Minato Mirai Gallery" has three exhibition rooms that differ in size and atmosphere depending on lighting, etc. The first gallery we will introduce is Gallery A, which is located right from the entrance and has a high ceiling that takes advantage of the open-air architectural structure and is flooded with natural light. The exhibition wall is extremely wide, making it the perfect space to display large works.
Next is "Gallery B" located at the back of Gallery A.
Unlike Gallery A, this space is completely blocked from outside light. This is a gallery where you can create a calm atmosphere using only spotlights.
And this is Gallery C, which is adjacent to Gallery A and has even brighter lighting.
At the time of our interview, one large-scale exhibition was being held using three exhibition rooms, but sometimes three exhibitions with different contents are held in each exhibition room. What's fascinating about it is that it changes into a different art space every time you visit. Minato Mirai Gallery is in a great location, close to tourist attractions such as Yokohama Port and Yokohama Red Brick Warehouse, commercial facilities such as Minato Mirai Tokyu Square, and accommodation facilities such as hotels. Why not take a break from sightseeing or shopping and casually enjoy art viewing?
