G-Tokyo 2012

Forget the sprawling bazaar-style art fairs of old, where the volume of works on display and the haphazard nature of their presentation tends to overwhelm all but the most hardened industry insiders. When it started in 2010, G-Tokyo offered an alternative that was instantly appealing: a small group of just 15 galleries, each presenting specially commissioned work, either by a single artist or a carefully curated project. The third edition repeats that format, with contributions by some of the city's most cherished art spaces, including Scai The Bathhouse, Ota Fine Arts, Wako Works of Art and Kodama Gallery. The show promises to offer a taste of some of the current trends in Japanese contemporary art, including solo exhibits by painter Toshiyuki Konishi and new media artist Takao Minami, while also finding space for contributions from overseas artists such as Sterling Ruby and Miriam Cahn.
