This is the Kanagawa Prefectural Gallery’s second group show of the works of young up-and-coming Japanese artists.

This year, it features three New York-based artists — Satoru Eguchi, Kazue Taguchi and Midori Harima — who each created new works under the theme of “Hidden Reasons.” All three artists have held several solo and group exhibitions internationally and received various awards and nominations for their works.

The exhibition includes sculpture and projection installations, an unusual mix of everyday utensils, crafts and paintings — and all of them specially created to make full use of the gallery’s five different-sized and unusually high-ceilinged exhibition spaces; Tue., Oct. 18 to Sat., Nov. 19.
