'Gather: Gift'

GALLERY NOMART

by Yukari Tanaka

Feb. 16-March 16

In 2017, psychologist and art critic Yasuo Miwaki organized an art exhibition featuring two artists — Yoshinobu Nakagawa and Kohei Takahashi — titled “Gather: Crowd.” It was the first exhibition Miwaki had organized, and was inspired by Nakagawa’s observations of art and his views on the creative process.

This is the second “Gather” exhibition of what is now a series of shows, and it features three contemporary artists — Hajime Imamura, Asako Tanaka and Motonori Inagaki — each presenting works created under the theme of “gift.”

To inspire the three artists, they were asked to send each other gifts that would become the starting points of their artworks.
