“1223 GENDAIKAIGA”, a contemporary painting collection, showing primarily Japanese works aims to be the place for people to easily drop by in their daily lives to enjoy paintings and photos. Four exhibitions are expected to be launched each year with 10 to 15 works displayed in each exhibition. These works are mainly selected from a private collection. We shall make an effort to enable viewers to experience comfort and enjoyment for even a short time during their day. It will be our pleasure to provide an opportunity to visitors to know painters and photographers by being a space where you can not only share perceptions; but also discover a brand new feeling through the exhibitions. We hope that you can find something here.
