A soon-to-be-demolished school building might sound too spooky to be a venue for an art show, but that’s precisely where Trans Arts Tokyo is being held.

The 17 above-ground floors and two basement floors that used to belong to Tokyo Denki University in the Kanda district have been turned into a playground for more than 200 artists and designers from 16 different genres. The project, organized by the Tokyo University of the Arts and operated by the art nonprofit Command N (which also runs 3331 Arts Chiyoda), is part of a grassroots movement to create a new community art center in Kanda.
