For the past 10 years, the gallery has been working with artists based in Japan and it currently represents seven Japanese artists: Jun Fujita, Takeo Hanazawa, Takahiro Inamori, Yuko Murata, Shizuka Mitsui, Masaru Tatsuki, and Fumito Urabe. These emerging artists have started participating in regional and international group museum exhibitions.
The gallery has also introduced international perspectives to the Japanese scene, including Korean artist Joe Yong Rhee and Italian painter Santi Alleruzzoin. GALLERY SIDE 2 also recently presented Peter McDonald’s first solo exhibition in 10 years. To this day, the gallery continues to work with local and international contemporary artists.
Following his move to Villa San Giovanni, Alleruzzo exhibited in various Italian cities, including Catania, Bologna, and Rome. Although he remains relatively unknown outside of Italy, his tranquil paintings are now starting to receive attention more than 10 years after his death.
