ShugoArts is pleased to announce the opening of ShugoArts Show, a group exhibition by our artists, from July 20 to September 7, 2019.
This year, Leiko IKEMURA had a solo exhibition Our Planet - Earth & Stars at the National Art Center, Tokyo where the artist showcased the layers of her history and artistic practice spanning the two locations between Europe and Japan for over 30 years. Her strength and uniqueness as an individual are important to point out in the art world after the 1980s. In this exhibition, we are going to present a part of her diverse body of work in which you can see paper-based artworks with pencil, pastel and watercolour. In addition, we will present a canvas work of a girl resting in a prone position, which will be exhibited in Japan for the first time.
In the second room, we will display a series of new works by Aki KONDO, who keeps nurturing her vibrant sensibility while ceaselessly making her art in Sapporo. Furthermore, you will be able to see monochrome paintings by Naofumi MARUYAMA, glass sculptures by Ritsue MISHIMA, paintings with silver supports by Anju MICHELE, and more. Please visit us to take advantage of this rare opportunity. We would appreciate it if you can promote this exhibition on your own media.
