We are pleased to present Connect #2, a group exhibition featuring select artists from our program, at MAKI Gallery / Tennoz II, Tokyo.
The exhibition will include works by artists such as Satoru Tamura, Takuro Tamura, Shiori Tono, Miya Ando, Takahiro Yamamoto, and baanai. In addition to showcasing the individual artworks, we will highlight the appeal of the gallery space as a whole by changing the works on view intermittently throughout the exhibition period. The presented artworks are each imbued with their own unique worldview, values, and messages, yet become connected within a single space—connecting to the viewers, and to the direction of the gallery's aim to unearth new perspectives in one another.
Following Connect #1, the well-received group exhibition held in January 2021, Connect #2 brings together artists working with a wide range of materials, techniques, contexts, motifs, and concepts. However, when we view the works and imagine each artist's process, we begin to notice their diverse practices all share the commonality of repeated physicality and spiritual connection and disconnection[m1] . Furthermore, we hope this exhibition will provide an opportunity for new relationships to be forged among artists, collectors, and galleries, and that these ties will lead to stronger alliances and partnerships within the art community.
We welcome you to experience and engage with this new group presentation, the second installment in MAKI Gallery's Connect series.
