Executive Director Sueo Mizuma opened Mizuma Art Gallery in Tokyo in 1994. Since then, the gallery has continuously presented artists from Japan and, increasingly, the surrounding regions, whose works possess distinctive sensibilities unaffected by fleeting stylistic trends. Matching the rapid expansion of Asia’s contemporary art market, Mizuma Art Gallery opened an additional space in Singapore’s Gillman Barracks in 2012. Another gallery space was opened in New York in 2018.
TANADA Koji: Apart, From Here On
October 26–November 26
This is an exhibition of new works by Tanada Koji, who has consistently worked in wood sculpture and continues to carve human figures using the ancient Japanese wood carving technique of ichiboku-zukuri. The exhibition will feature the works statue of space and 2020: Nuda Veritas, both of which were created by splitting a single large piece of camphor tree in two, as well as a sculpture of a boy and a new series of two-dimensional works.
