Newborn for New York

After nearly four years of beta-testing in Tokyo, today, we gave birth to a new Art and Design guide to freedom, just for New York. With 850 venues worth of events and exhibitions, this is a very healthy baby. Welcome to NYArtBeat!

Four years ago in Tokyo, a bunch of art-lovers from around the world created a website tailored to their quirks and needs: an easier way to enjoy the incredible wealth of art and design that the megalopolis had to offer, free of the corseted selections of experts and editors. What was pure fun, pure freedom – Tokyo Art Beat was born.

Four years later, TAB has become the leading source for art and design information in Tokyo, and its younger sister KAB is putting the Kansai Scene (Osaka, Kyoto, Kobe) under the spotlight. With reviews, maps, bookmarking, smartlists, a mobile version and other features, TAB has made it easy for everyone from casual weekenders to hardcore art critics to discover new movements in the city and join the conversations around them.

By 2008, TAB’s New Yorkers decided to extend the family back home with New York Art Beat, a new art and design guide to freedom.

Today, with already 700 events covering 850 venues, reviews on the blog, and much more to come, this big baby is making its first steps.

Follow the beat.

Welcome to New York.
