To steal most of the exhibits, the visitors had less than an hour

While the majority of galleries and museums around the world concerned with the preservation of the exhibited items, gallery Same Gallery in Tokyo, decided on a unique experiment, opening the exhibition Stealable Art Exhibition, that is, translated into Russian, "an Exhibition of art that you can steal". This project was conceived as an illustration of the unequal relationship between the viewer/visitor of the exhibition and the artist, and think, for clarity, has surpassed all expectations of the organizers.

July 10, according to the previously announced schedule, a gallery of all the staff had left, leaving all exhibits are available for daily public 24/7. In terms of action, every visitor can, if desired, to get a-то of the exhibited items. The exhibition was due to run in this mode until the walls of the gallery would remain at least one exhibit.

However, the situation quickly got out-под control. What was conceived as a kind of thought experiment with the participation of many prominent representatives of modern art of Japan, was the invasion of the difficult controlled the crowds, read on social networks that the gallery will be giving out free artwork. In the end, the time of opening access to the exhibits at the entrance to the gallery were about two hundred people, and it was all over in less than ten minutes. To avoid a stampede, the gallery even had to open the door a little earlier than planned. Thus, many representatives of art-среды who came at the appointed time, to see how to go hands on exhibits (the exhibition was designed for 10 days), saw a only a blank wall.

"the day of the event more people came than we expected, so after discussing the situation, we were forced to start before the scheduled time" — said in a statement on the website of the gallery. "We would like to sincerely apologize to all the residents of the area and those who couldn't see the exhibits, despite the fact that he came at the appointed time. We did not expect that the show could cause such a mess". To ensure security and order had to involve the police. In addition, only a few hours after the opening of the exhibition the items taken from the gallery, began to appear online-аукционов with a starting price to 100,000 yen ($930).

we Can say that the reality surpassed all the plans of the organizers: "art available to steal", was actually stolen. Let not those people and not at the pace expected by probably the Same specialists at Tokyo Gallery.
