デザインフェスタギャラリーは、「表現している全ての人のための開かれた場所をつくる」 というアートイベントデザインフェスタのコンセプトをそのままに、1998年の春、原宿にオープンしました。 どんな人でも出展が出来る、全てのアーティストのためのギャラリーです。 また、デザインフェスタ同様販売も自由で、手数料や委託料はかかりません。 初めての展覧会、友達同士のグループ展、ワークショップ開催、映画上映会、新作商品の展示会など、いろいろな用途でお使い頂けます。

  • The idea of creating a place of the counterculture, where freedom of expression is guaranteed is awesome. Here can matter your age, your nationality, your expression vector, you can rent one or more rooms and expose. It's a great idea, the building's original. Now your pleasure, your enthusiasm depends on the artists present the day you place. It must however go and discover the arts and artistic expressions with which we are less familiar.

  • In this building the artist rooms are rented by the day. You can visit the rooms and come with the artists in the interview. Between the two buildings there is a nice coffee.

  • Harajuku Takeshita street people hanging around, that we come to Design Festa Gallery traveled to. The drifting subculture odor, unlike the atmosphere the capicapi of middle and high school students, located in the area known as the so-called Harajuku pop world will appear. Because it attracts international artists and has a magnetic personality might lead to interesting encounters. Take a walk because the building itself has become a medium of expression in the way I look at it I think.

  • Crazy place in already crazy Harajuku. One of the most arty places I visited in Tokyo. It had all sorts of contemporary art exhibitions and installations. It managed to not look as pretentious as similar galleries in, say, east London, but maybe it was just me getting excited about being there. The whole building was an installation on its own, and that's what I liked the most. It is not that it featured some creations, it was all a creation on its own. A holistic type approach. Apart from the art, the place had one of the best restaurants/cafes I ever ate at while in Tokyo (and this is maybe because I am no great fan of the raw-ness of Japanese food). The food there was indeed local, but you got to cook it yourself. Yes, half of my table was a heating/frying surface. I ordered the ingredients (the food I wanted), it came to me raw, and I could fry it on my own, however much I wanted. Unique experience, I must say. You have to try it.
  • Free wifi available and right next to it there is a Sakura Tei okonomiyaki restaurant here ! Great place to chill !
  • Just stumbled across the place whilst walking through the backstreets. Great little place full of interesting work across many disciplines. Love the quiet cafe/restaurant in the garden in the middle.
  • Very interesting and unique but limited.
  • It's okay. There's nothing too exciting here. The art is not my thing. The building is worth a snap.
