ARTCOURT Gallery was founded in 2003 as a project gallery handling contemporary art. We organize dynamic, convention-breaking projects that take advantage of our 230 square meter exhibition space.
A great variety of exhibitions are planned at the gallery, from polished solo shows by established artists, to stimulating project exhibitions that introduce up-and-coming young artists currently receiving acclaim. Our aim is to present outstanding contemporary art works that have both sharp conceptuality and original formal beauty, and to raise questions about the society we live in via the openings art provides.
ARTCOURT Gallery maintains a flexible outlook in order to respond to the constantly diversifying, variegating expressive forms arising in today’s contemporary art, as well as their ways of being appreciated or experienced, and endeavors to fulfill its role not only as a space for the appreciation of artwork, but further, as an interactive-attractive zone that activates the curiosity of gallery visitors and brings about interactions between society and artwork, artwork and people, and among visitors themselves. To this end, we are continually carrying out projects that posit the gallery space itself as an intermediary connecting society, contemporary art and people.
ARTCOURT Gallery strives to accentuate the outstanding potential of the Kansai region as a source of important artists who are engaged in avant-garde practices and represent the forefront of the Japanese art world. In addition, we are deeply committed to introducing a wealth of art to individual people, installing works in public spaces, establishing a relationship of mutual trust with Japanese and foreign museums, and promoting artists in order that their work might be shown and collected more widely in the future.
