DESCRIPTION

In 1950, Tokyo Gallery opened in Ginza as the first contemporary art gallery in Japan. It introduced Western avant garde artists such as Lucio Fontana and Jackson Pollock to Japan before anybody else and taking note of the Gutai and "Mono-ha" artists, it supported the development of their work. Having worked closely with Korean contemporary art from the 1970s and Chinese contemporary art from the latter half of the 1980s, in 2002 Tokyo Gallery opened Beijing Tokyo Art Projects (B.T.A.P.) in the Dashanzi district of Beijing. In 2000, the gallery started being run by two brothers, who with a team of young staff bring their personal touch to the gallery's activities.

Having both a long history and a contemporary outlook, Tokyo Gallery strives to promote Japanese, Chinese and Korean contemporary art on an international level.
