Posted January 06, 2018 07:18:36 Kawasaki’s photographic museum in Montéréal will be open for the first time ever in 2018, and it’s all thanks to a Kickstarter campaign that was started by the Japanese company Kawasaki.
The Kawasaki Photography Museum in Montreal opened its doors for the month of January 2018, in a building located in the heart of downtown Montréa.
The museum was started as a response to the devastating earthquake that occurred in March of 2017, when it received the first of two donations from Kawasaki, which was able to rebuild and rebuild in its home city of Kobe.
The second donation came from the Kawasaki Foundation, which is responsible for the Kawazis health and wellness initiatives in the city.
The Kickstarter campaign, which started on December 15th, 2018, raised over $1,300,000, which has now been put towards the building of the museum.
“We have a very limited space, so we’re hoping to expand the exhibition space and make it bigger and better,” said the museum’s director, Renaud Dupont.
The new building will include a new exhibition space, a cafe, and a public gallery.
The opening ceremony will be held at the Kawakus new museum on January 11th, 2019.
The new museum will be in its third year, and is a collaboration between Kawasaki and the Japanese government, with a budget of $50 million.
“This is a great opportunity to work with a Japanese company, and to see how our business model can work in Japan,” Dupont said.
“They have a great idea for how we can make things better.”
The new building has been designed by architect Richard Hahn, who is responsible of the new buildings at the Guggenheim Museum in New York.
The Kawasaki Museum in Montrea is a new addition to the city, and the Kawaguchiyama museum is the oldest museum in the world.
The Museum in Paris, which opened in 2015, is also looking to expand its collections, and Dupont is hoping to open another museum in his native Japan.
“I am looking forward to the time when I will have a Japanese museum in my country,” he said.
