15 Years

2018.7.3 [tue]-8.10 [fri] 11:00-19:00 (Saturdays -5:00pm) Closed on Sunday and Mondays

This summer, ARTCOURT Gallery will be celebrating its 15th anniversary.

We have encountered many talented, up-and-coming young artists in the past 15 years.
In this exhibition, the vibrant works made by 11 artists will be brought together. Various forms of expression will coexist, and resonate with each other, such as the mysterious quietness and narrative quality of the works by Yasuyoshi Botan, the new sensory experiences created from the surface of urushi lacquer by Genta Ishizuka, Yasuaki Onishi who visualizes the voids of materials in his sculptural installations, which is difficult to capture, and the pursuit of raw reality within the distorted time and space of painting by Seishu Niihira.
We would also like to look back, through their monographs, on the creativity of Osamu Kokufu and Jun Nishida, who both presented countless notable works to the world.

We are holding this anniversary exhibition, 15 Years, with the hopes of continuing to be a gallery with ambitious spirit, in the same way as them.
