BUG is an art center* run by Recruit Holdings Co., Ltd., and opened its doors on September 20, 2023.
Drawing on our experience of operating “Recruit’s Two Galleries” in Ginza for over 30 years as part of our CSR activities, we are committed to providing an open space where a diverse range of visitors, including students and those who have gone out into society, people from abroad, and of course, artists and art workers**, can encounter new perspectives, people, and concepts.
Furthermore, we place high value on cultivating a relationship of trust with the artists and art workers that we collaborate with in each exhibition and event—fostering new opportunities and creating an environment where individuals can challenge themselves to the best of their ability. Moreover, we aspire to actively offer career support and enhance working conditions within the art industry, with the aim of ensuring that individuals have the peace of mind to pursue their activities over the long term. As we embark on this new endeavor at BUG, we will act in accordance with the following directives.
*This conveys our dedication to not only host exhibition projects, but also support artists— creating a space where various people come together through art and mutually influence each other.
**Museum and gallery staff members, and freelancers in the field of art.
