・Hibiya OKUROJI Art Fair 2023

Hidden in the depths of Hibiya, galleries will gather at Hibiya OKUROJI, a place under the elevated railroad tracks that attracts the attention of adults.
In order to return to the origins of art fairs, we aim to be a place where both core art fans and first-time visitors to art fairs can convey the fun of contemporary art without barriers, and admission is free.
A gallery tour where you can listen to explanations in the gallery owner's own words will be held twice a day during the exhibition period.
In the newly established "Emerging" section, we will introduce the next generation of expression by independent gallerists who do not have a gallery space and staff of existing galleries directing under their own names.
It will be held during the same period as Art Fair Tokyo, and can be toured on foot from the Tokyo International Forum.

・Let's take a look at corporate collections

Based on the hypothesis that domestic companies can be actively involved in the contemporary art scene by correctly understanding and rediscovering the value of the artworks stored by companies, multiple cooperating companies We researched and appraised hundreds of works in the archives of . In this exhibition, we will display some of the works that are not usually available for viewing.
Works on display: Sotaro Yasui, Zenzaburo Kojima, Kazumasa Nakagawa


In this demonstration project, we will support three young artists with less than eight years of career in creating and storing their works through donations and sales, and will hold the "OKUROJI STUDIO EXHIBITION". The created works will be exhibited at multiple companies such as offices, and will be sold. As a result, the company realizes a form of support that does not collect works, and it is an initiative that allows artists to express themselves free from production and storage costs.

With the question of "how to deal with the oblivion of memory" as the starting point of his work, he focuses on the relationship between matter and memory. Currently, he is focusing on the medium of photography, which is closely related to memory for him, and is trying to approach the inner world of memories and emotions through the technique of dissolving photographs in water.
