Demythifying Japanese Women Artists

24th Nov–15th Dec, 2016 10:00am – 6:00pm

NUKAGA GALLERY is pleased to present “Demythifying Japanese Women Artists: Yuki Katsura, Yayoi Kusama, Atsuko Tanaka, Yuko Nasaka,” an exhibition spotlighting four of Japan’s best-known postwar women artists. As implied by demythify, the exhibition aims to re-examine the essential value of Yayoi Kusama, Atsuko Tanaka, and Yuko Nasaka at a time when they are going from strength to strength in an area of the art market that is heating up. Exhibiting these artists alongside work by Yuki Katsura, a unique, pioneering artist from a generation two decades earlier, provides the opportunity to rediscover the diversity and abundance of creative activity by Japan’s avant-garde women artists. In preparation for this exhibition, we have brought together a selection of significant works by these artists, including a work by Yuki Katsura of a size rarely seen in the market, early works by Yayoi Kusama, previously unseen works by Atsuko Tanaka, and works by Yuko Nasaka that have been exhibited outside Japan.

*The gallery will be closed on Sundays*
