November 15, 2022

KOTARO NUKAGA will participate in “Art Collaboration Kyoto” (ACK), an art fair themed on “contemporary art and collaboration” to be held in Kyoto from November 18 (Fri) to 20 (Sun), 2022.(HP:https://a-c-k.jp/)

KOTARO NUKAGA will be exhibiting with Chicago-based Kavi Gupta. Starting with Tomokazu Matsuyama, who is represented by both galleries, KOTARO NUKAGA will bring Kyoto-based painter Tomona Matsukawa; Keita Morimoto, who resided in Canada for many years before relocating to Tokyo, his current base; and Joel Mesler, whose works draw upon his history of addiction. Kavi Gupta will present Roger Brown (1941- ), an artist often considered a member of the Chicago Imagists that was well-known for the shrewd social commentary within his works; Beverly Fishman, who creates powerfully luminescent geometric relief paintings; and Devan Shimoyama, who explores   art historical narratives through his depictions of Black queer male bodies

Art Collaboration Kyoto (ACK) is an art fair held in Kyoto under the theme of “contemporary art and collaboration.” It is one of the largest art fairs in Japan specializing in contemporary art, and is unique in the collaborations it forges between Japanese and international galleries, government and private sectors, and the fine arts and other fields.The main venue, Kyoto International Conference Center, will consist of two sections, “Gallery Collaborations” and “Kyoto Meetings,” where works will be exhibited and sold. In addition, special exhibitions planned by newly appointed Program Director Yukako Yamashita will be held in Kyoto City, and a number of satellite programs are scheduled to coincide with the holding of ACK.
