Hong Kong 2018

Mizuma Art Gallery
Executive Director Sueo Mizuma opened Mizuma Art Gallery in Tokyo in 1994. Since then the gallery has continuously presented artists from Japan and, increasingly, the surrounding region, whose works possess distinctive sensibilities unaffected by fleeting stylistic trends.   Matching the rapid expansion of Asia’s contemporary art market, Mizuma Art Gallery opened additional spaces in Beijing and in Singapore’s Gillman Barracks in 2008 and 2012 respectively. In 2014 the artist residency space “Rumah Kijang Mizuma” opened in Yogyakarta, Indonesia, to support exchanges between local and Japanese artists.   In 2019 the gallery will celebrate 25 years of being a unique force for both international development of Japan’s finest contemporary artists, and sensitive engagement between these figures and other artists from diverse aesthetic milieux.
