SEZON ART GALLERY
Making its sensational debut with the “Marcel Duchamp” Exhibition on the summer of 1981,
Sezon Museum of Modern Art has been spending its time with numerous works of Japanese artists through the “Art Today” Exhibition, introducing not only 20th century art from overseas, but emerging young artists as well. Starting with Seiji Tsutsumi (The founder of Sezon Museum of Modern Art), Usami Keiji and his comrade Hideo Namba (Director of museum), Kumi Sugai who was active in Paris, Hisao Domoto, Shusaku Arakawa who owns 128 pieces of “The Mechanism of Meaning”, and too numerous to mention when the generation goes down even further to Yoichiro Yoda and Mitsumasa Kadota.
What widened that horizon was Sezon Art Gallery, which gave its first cry on November 25, 2017; on the death anniversary of Seiji Tsutsumi. There, transcending the classification done by the dispatcher of art such as fine-art and design by pursuing the receiver’s “Joy”, various artists who would have been unable in Karuizawa were introduced; And will come to an end on Seiji Tsutumi’s death anniversary, November 25.
With the collection of Japanese artists from Sezon Museum of Modern Art at Karuizawa and the works of young artists announced at Sezon Art Gallery coming across in unison, this is to be the exhibition appropriate to encrust the epilogue of Sezon Art Gallery. We would appreciate if the activities and the future which awaits Sezon from this exhibition are taken in; an exhibition curated by the representative of both the museum and galley, Takao Tsutsumi.
Being part of the new activity of SEZON Museum of Modern Art, we would like to announce the launch of “SEZON ART GALLERY” in Jingumae/Tokyo. This space with “Life in Art” as a theme is where art works causing friction with the outside world are sold in our gallery being united with a café/dining bar where people can inflate their imagination.
