Taka Ishii Gallery
Since its opening in 1994, Taka Ishii Gallery has continued to maintain and develop an exhibition program based on the goals of introducing international contemporary artists within Japan and acting as an international platform for emerging Japanese artists as well as contemporary masters. While the gallery aesthetic is rooted in the photographic, the program is contemporary and represented artists work in a variety of media. A yearly exhibition program of eight solo and/or group exhibitions is supplemented by the publication of catalogs and artists' books. In addition to the primary exhibition space at complex665 in Roppongi, amanaTIGP focuses on historical shows of pre and postwar Japanese photography and film. In 2023, branches in Kyoto and Maebashi have opened, developing collaborative projects with artists based in and outside of Japan. The gallery also operates a viewing space in Hong Kong that introduces works of international artists whose practices transcend existing frameworks of contemporary art.
