Tokyo Gallery is the first contemporary art gallery in Tokyo founded in 1950. The gallery pioneered in introducing Western avant-garde artists to Japan. The gallery also supported experimental projects by Japanese artists, including Jiro Takamatsu, Kazuo Shiraga, Taro Okamoto and Mono-ha; all now internationally-renowned. The history of gallery's activities has been synonymous with the history of contemporary art in Japan. The gallery began working with Korean artists such as Kim Whangki and Lee Ufan in the 1970s,and also started exhibiting Chinese artists, including Xu Bing and Lee Ufan since the 1980s. In 2002, the gallery opened a new space BTAP in the now world-renowned Beijing 798 Art District. Inheriting the pioneer spirit and currently operating as Tokyo Gallery + BTAP, the gallery continues its mission on discovering and promoting both established and rising artists.
