|command N - established in April 1998, is a new Artist- Initiative organization run by artists.
The name is taken from a Macintosh computer shortcut command "+m" which opens a new window in front of us.
Through involvement in a rich variety of art projects and activities, we try to be the most exciting and innovative new art spot in Tokyo, collaborating with local art communities and with the help of many volunteer staff.
