ARTCOURT Gallery was founded in 2003 as a commercial 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.

Introducing young artists - Art Court Frontier
Art Court Frontier is an annual project juxtaposing emerging artists from the Kansai area. This exhibition brings together under one roof the works of ten to twelve truly promising, dynamic artists, all from or currently residing in Kansai. The artists are selected by obtaining one recommendation each from persons currently active at the forefront of the art world such as artist, curator, art critic, journalist and art appreciator. We aim to convey fascinating indications of the pulse of Kansai today through this project, which continues to excel in its role as a testing ground for emerging artists.
