Germany-based Japanese artist Yoshiaki Kaihatsu began 39 Art Day in 2000 to increase appreciation of contemporary art in Japan. The name has something to do with 39 rhyming with 'thank you' in Japanese. Tomorrow, Friday 9 March 2007, is 39 Art Day and this year Art in Liverpool have organised a series of offers and events in conjunction with independent artists and galleries in Liverpool.
The extensive listings include free origami cranes at the Artfinder gallery and free sake whilst viewing art at Sapporo Teppanyaki. We don't have access to instant messenging at work, but anyone with a webcam and an MSN Messenger account might be interested in web cam performance art from Transvoyeur (1-4pm). Amongst the artists performing will be Gary Sollars, whose painting 'When I Grow Up I Want To Go In There' was in last year's John Moores 24.
