Atsuko Ninagawa opened this Azabu-Juban gallery in December 2007, having previously worked as a curator in New York. It’s one of the contemporary art galleries of the so-called ‘post-Kiyosumi-Shirakawa generation'. The gallery represents young standard-bearers for the contemporary art world, such as Shinro Ohtake, Soju Tao, Misaki Kawai, Yukiko Suto and Yuuki Matsumura. The gallery also actively engages in overseas art scenes representing international artists including Dale Berning, and has exhibited at art fairs in Miami, Hong Kong and France. The gallery is one of the few places to see top-quality international art made by young artists without having to leave the shores of Japan. Tokyo Tower can be seen rising in the background, giving visitors a real feeling of being in Tokyo. Head on from here in the direction of Shirokane for more gallery-hopping.
