This event has ended.
To celebrate its 70th anniversary, Tokyo Gallery is delighted to hold a two-part exhibition reflecting its history. Part 1 focuses on the 1960s, during which the gallery promoted leading postwar Japanese artists, showcasing original works of this period featuring Yoshishige Saitō, Yuki Katsura, Jiro Yoshihara, and Kim Whanki of the Kyushitsu-kai (Ninth Room Association); Kazuo Shiraga and Sadamasa Motonaga from the Gutai group; Masunobu Yoshimura and Ushio Shinohara from the Neo Dada Organizers; and Jiro Takamatsu of the Hi-Red Center. Part 2 brings together the Mono-ha artists of the late 60s as well as contemporary Chinese and Korean artists that Tokyo Gallery first introduced to Japanese audiences in the 70s and the 80s. Through this small yet important selection of works, Tokyo Gallery hopes to portray this pivotal period in the development of East Asian contemporary art.
