Tokyo Gallery BTAP

By Claire Chauvel

Tokyo Gallery is the oldest contemporary art gallery in Tokyo. Since its founding in 1950, the gallery has introduced a series of Western avant-garde artists such as Fontana, Yves Klein, Pollock and Hudertwasser to Japan. The gallery also supported experimental projects by Japanese artists, including Jiro Takamatsu, Kazuo Shiraga, Taro Okamoto and the Mono-ha group. In the 1970s, the gallery began working with Korean artists such as Kim Whangki and Lee Ufan. The gallery was among the first to exhibit then-unknown Chinese artists Xu Bing and Cai Guoqiang in the 1980s. It’s a great venue for discovering both established and rising artists.
