I’m a bit late on this, but “Central East Tokyo 2006” (CET06) has already started, and goes on until December 3.
Launched in 2003, CET (Central East Tokyo) is being held for the fourth time this year. While up to now CET has been a large-scale affaire using the entire downtown area in eastern Tokyo as a venue, the style is changing with the 2006 edition. CET06 is not a temporary festivity, but was scaled down in order to transfer it to the level of an everyday kind of event. This time the spectacle is being staged a ten different venues, with mainly creators residing in the area presenting antiquarian bookshops and other projects. Opening as a permanent base this time is the gallery & shop “UT”. The program 2006 includes again an exhibition of pattern artist Tokoro Asao, who also participated last year. (REALTOKYO)
