From 1996-2006, the gallery at CAVE showed the work of over 300 artists becoming a locus for experimentation in all mediums. CAVE Gallery began as a venture of Shige Moriya and a group of artists in the mid-90’s. Fostered from an industrial rental, they transformed the 3,000 sq ft garage into a live-work space, which was considered to be one of the first recognized galleries of the neighborhood. Away from heavy commercial pressure, in an environment that supported exploration, artists were able to present ‘nakedly’ by offering completed and in-progress works and receiving feedback from peers. In addition to studio arts, openings often included music and other kinds of performances.
