We will join "Hakata Hankyu × ART FAIR ASIA FUKUOKA" January 16 (Wed) – 22 (Tue), 2019

Hakata Hankyu × ART FAIR ASIA FUKUOKA - The Sign of Art
January 16 (Wed) – 22 (Tue), 2019

10:00 - 19:00 *open until 21:00 on Friday and Saturday
Location: Media Stage 1 on the 1st floor, at Hakata Hankyu
Admission fee: Free


It is a festival of contemporary art held in Fukuoka. In 2018, 37 galleries leading contemporary art both
inside and outside Japan converged to transform the guest rooms of Hotel Okura Fukuoka into artistic
space. The paintings, sculptures, engravings, photographs and installation artworks selected by gallerist
were gathered in one place. The fifth fair is planned to be held in the beginning of September 2019.
In Japan, we tend to experience art only by looking at. Although in Hakata Hankyu, customers are
increasing who purchase paintings and craftworks to enjoy art in everyday life. We often hear terms
such as "the age of individualism" and " complex society" these days. It is difficult to reach the correct
answer and it is not necessarily only one. Living in such era requires us to know what we want to do and
what we should do. One way to find the answer can be decision-making based on intuition and
sensibility, or in other words, your aesthetic sense.
This time, we exhibit and sell artworks by collaborating with "ART FAIR ASIA FUKUOKA 2018", the
largest gallery show in Kyushu. Those artworks were carefully selected by 12 galleries which
participated in ART FAIR ASIA FUKUOKA 2018 and leading contemporary art world both inside and
outside Japan. We introduce more than 30 contemporary artworks including paintings, 3 dimensional
works, and engravings ranging from works by spirited young artists to ones by artists representing
Kyushu. We hope this event becomes an opportunity for you to get more familiar with art, to take
pleasure in appreciating art, and to experience the abundance of everyday life with which art blends in.
Please enjoy the "Sign" of art which is spreading rapidly in recent years.

*The artworks are exhibited during the period of exhibition in principle.
 They will be handed over to customers afterwards.
*Each artworks are examples of the artists' works.
*The list price includes consumption tax.

Yoshio YOSHIMURA exibition ー Newspaper and Self-portrait ー 

January 12 [Sat] - 27 [Sun], 2019
Hours: 10am – 6pm (open every day during the exhibition)

Have you already seen the exhibition "Yoshimura Yoshio: Hyper-realism" at Tokyo Station Gallery (until January 20th, 2019) This is a long-awaited retrospective in Tokyo 5 years after his death. The display shows the full picture of his artworks and the artist's way of life. It is only about 5 years that I was associated with Mr. Yoshimura. I believed, "We can work on a global scale with this artist". It would be rare to meet such an artist in a life of a gallerist. I think about the happiness of the encounter with him while I cast my mind to memories surrounded by his artworks at Tokyo Station Gallery. Yoshio Yoshimura pursued his art practice eagerly with superhuman mental strength and tenacity. In 2011, he elatedly left for Paris to study abroad for the first time after turning sixty. What he made there was over 1000 self portrait drew with pencil on local newspaper. 
This exhibition will show works from "Newspaper and Self-portrait in Paris" and "Self-portrait of A-un" made by screen printing together with colored pencil drawings of flowers.  We look forward to your visits.

Hideo Benjamin NODA Exhibition
October 6 [Sat] - 21 [Sun], 2018

The Scottsboro Boys - A false accident arrested 9 African American teenagers, ages 13 to 20 in Alabama of raping two White American women on a train in 1931. It made public opinion as an incident reflecting the problem of racial discrimination in America. Hideo NODA also known as Hideo Benjamin NODA criticized American society pessimistically, with repeated African American teenagers in his own circumstances that was subject to persecution and exclusion as a Japanese-American artist.

This work titled `The Scottsboro Boys’ will be exhibited for the exhibition of Mexican Muralism and Art in the United States, 1920-1950 at Whitney Museum of American Art (New York) in 2020.

In the economic crisis of the 1930s, Hideo NODA developed his painting style of looking gently over his kindness, focusing on people’s emotions living in cities in the United States.

In 1933, he joined with Ben Shahn, Jackson Pollock and others as assistant of Diego Rivera who made mural of the Rockefeller Center. He ran through a short lifetime of 30 years. In this exhibition, 27 works mainly drawings will be exhibited. We do hope you will be able to have a look.

Hideo NODA / born in Santa Clara, California, 1908. In 1911, he was left at uncle’s house in Kumamoto where his parents originally from. In 1926, after graduating from Kumamoto prefectural junior high school, he travelled alone to the United States. In 1929, attended the California School of Fine Arts. He met Diego Rivera and moved to Woodstock Art Village (New York) in 1931. His painting `Street Scene' was purchased by Whitney Museum of American Art in 1934. In 1937, he traveled to Paris, Rome and other cities, after that returned to Japan. 1938, he moved to Genichiro INOKUMA’s absence house in Denenchofu, Tokyo. He was sick and hospitalized while staying on the shore of Nojiri Lake in Nagano prefecture. A brain tumor ended his life on Jan. 12, 1939 at the age of 30 in Tokyo.

September 28(Fri.)-September 30(Sun.),2018

Official website: http://www.art-marche.jp

This year, The Kobe Art Marché (KAM) welcomes the 10th anniversary. The galleries from across Japan participate in this art fair and exhibit their works in each room on the 13th floor of Kobe Meriken Park Oriental Hotel. Great locations of beautiful ocean view and Kobe’s street sights, it will be an easy-going event like that many guests join. We look forward to seeing you all at the Kobe Art Marché.

Mizoe Art Gallery/Room 1326, we are going to present three great artists Kenpei YUNDE, Satoru JOGASAKI and Takeshi WEI who are well received in past few years.
Firstly, Kenpei YUNDE believes that all the motifs are present on the "soil". He has been repeatedly putting and shaving oil on canvas to make matières over a year.We feel the deep beauty from the simple motif on the thick matières of his painting. In contrast, all his drawings express his respiration and realistic feelings with the improvisational sense of speed.
Next artist is Takeshi WEI. His works come from imaginary world. Painting melancholy figures and making playful objects with familiar waste materials such as drift woods. He produces a one-piece print by own method and a variety of works.
The last one is Satoru JOGASAKI.He makes humorous and emotional arts from casual moments. Innocent shaping Matières felt rough like sand but that is warm and close to our mind like a piece of road movie.

Please enjoy KOBE ART MARCHÉ 2018 to meet brilliant works.

Fee: 1,000 yen (Multi-Day Passport)
* If there is a purchase of merchandise over 5000 yen at the event; there will be a 1000 yen deduction available.
