Miyanoura Gallery 6│Setouchi " " Museum
A place for investigating, collecting, displaying, and discussing the climate and history of Setouchi
Miyanoura Gallery 6 is a gallery opened in Miyanoura, on Naoshima Island, in the summer of 2013. It was designed along with the neighboring park by architect Taira Nishizawa as a place for both island residents and tourists to visit and enjoy, using the former pachinko parlor Pachinko 999, which had once been a popular entertainment facility for the islanders. It is here that the Setouchi " " Museum project will begin.
Setouchi " " Museum was founded as a place for people living in Setouchi, people with connections to the area, and experts from a range of fields to meet, research, collect, exhibit, and discuss topics such as the scenery, landscape, culture, and history of the Setouchi region. The works will be recorded and preserved, and used for further exhibitions. This project is directed by artist Motoyuki Shitamichi.
