Chelsea, NYC: Viridian Artists is pleased to present “New Arts Prospect: Artists from Japan, Series VI, 2019”, Curated by Sai Morikawa. The exhibition continues from August 13th to 24th, 2018 with an opening reception, Thursday, August 15th, 6 - 8PM.

New York is a city where the top artists of the world have long coexisted, creating much diversity of art as they share creative expressions from a wide variety of cultures and backgrounds. This series, “New Arts Prospect: Artists from Japan”, although only in its sixth year, continues to introduce Japanese artists who are well known and respected in Japan but virtually unknown here.

The exhibition, held yearly in the summer, is especially important because the invited artists reveal  to a wider audience the particularly unique expressions of their Japanese cultural background with its intrinsically delicate and elaborate techniques.   

The 2019 Summer Exhibition will take place at Viridian Artists Gallery in Chelsea.  Established in the 1960s, Viridian has long supported ambitious up-and-coming and under-known artists for more than 50 years and continues to do so. Last year a catalog was published of the first Fifty Years of Viridian Artists which is available at the gallery & online.

Each year, this exhibition of contemporary Japanese has gained interest and attention in part because it invites not only art critics and writers, but the general public to vote and select their favorite artworks in the exhibit. Last year, ‘Contest in NY”, through its unique public voting on the art shown, invited visitors who come to not only to look at the art, but to select what they feel is the best work. In 2018, Taichi Hara won the Best Art Award for his work that combines classical painting with a fairytale-like conceptualization.  As a prize, Taichi was honored with a solo show in New York and celebrated the fifth year of the Summer Exhibition.

Through this exhibition, curator Sai Morikawa aims to promote and nurture cultural exchange between Japan and the world through art. This exhibition also serves as a significant milestone for participating artists as they build their artistic career. Regardless of their career stage, these artists will be showcasing fascinating art works. We look forward to seeing your vote for your favorite artwork and sharing this unique exhibit with you.

Gallery hours: Tuesday through Saturday 12-6PM
