About the Gallery
Take Ninagawa was established in Tokyo in 2008 by Atsuko Ninagawa. The gallery is dedicated to promoting emerging and historically established Japanese artists in a cross-generational, international framework. Represented artists build upon precedents in Japanese post-war experimental art while developing unique approaches that address contemporary concerns, while international artists in the gallery program are invited to respond to the unique context for contemporary art and culture in Japan. Each exhibition at the gallery is conceived on a project basis, with artists encouraged to develop ideas across series of exhibitions. The gallery opened its doors with a bold exhibition by emerging Japanese female artist, Misaki Kawai. The gallery has since gone on to exhibit works by emerging talent like Yukiko Suto and Soju Tao, as well as more established artists, like Izumi Kato and Shinro Ohtake.
