Koganecho Bazaar is an art festival co-organized by Koganecho Area Management Center and Hatsuko Hinodecho Environmental Cleanup Association as an ongoing effort towards community-renovation of the Koganecho area in Yokohama.
For its 6th edition, Koganecho Bazaar 2013 brings together sixteen artists from Japan and abroad to present artworks created through the artist-in-residence program. This year, the artists were chosen in three different ways. Five artist groups were selected through an open call for project proposals, while four groups were selected by the organizers. Lastly, as a new curatorial approach, seven artists were selected in consultation with the representatives from affiliated art spaces and artist collectives in the Asian region including Japan.
The art festival not only presents artworks throughout the area, but will also hold walking tours led by official tour guides. A wide variety of events, which includes the step plaza market by the local shops, will complement all these activities.
Discover the organic fusion of art and everyday life in Koganecho Bazaar as you visit artist studios under the train-bridge and venture through its narrow back alleys. Join us in this two-month exploration of forms as a result of collaboration between art and community.

The artists for the Koganecho Bazaar 2013 were selected in three different ways: consultations with the partner organizations in Japan and abroad, invitations from the organizer, and through an open call for project proposals. The festival provides artists with an opportunity to stay, develop and present a new body of artworks in the Koganecho area.
Koganecho Bazaar has been organizing various projects with an aim to build and facilitate international networks among creative communities. As a new step in this ongoing effort, this year’s festival consulted art spaces and artist collectives for the selection of artists. These groups have been creating unique programs in seven different cities in Asia. After receiving a total of 21 recommendations, seven artists (two from Japan, five from abroad) were chosen to participate in the Koganecho Bazaar 2013.
Four groups (2 from Japan, 2 from abroad) were selected by the organizer.
3 groups from Japan and 2 artists from abroad were selected out of 144 applications
