MAKI was originally established in 2003 as SAKURADO FINE ARTS, later changing its name to the present one to reflect its focus on emerging artists, while continuing to specialize in post-war and contemporary Japanese art. In recent years, we have held exhibitions by artists of a high calibre, such as Mungo Thomson, Miya Ando, and exonemo, who are based in the United States. We are also keen to support and nurture promising emerging artists, both Japanese and international.
In addition to the gallery space in Omotesando (Tokyo) which opened in 2014, we opened two new spaces on the first floor of TERRADA ART COMPLEX I & II in Tennoz (Tokyo) in 2020. The new space consists mainly of MAKI Collection, where works of the highest quality collected by gallery owners, Mr. and Mrs. Maki, are exhibited, as well as a gallery space. Temporary and permanent exhibitions are held in these spaces throughout the year.
The postwar avant-garde artists, whose art we have continued to present since the gallery’s founding, played an important role in the art scene of the times. Contemporary art and expression have inherited their legacy of innovation and endless human creativity. Seeing those artists as our predecessors, we will continue to present art through exhibitions and artfairs as a platform for considering how we might leave this legacy to the next generation.
