Works and Biography
We are pleased to announce the opening of ShugoArts Show from February 8 to April 4, 2020. For this exhibition, Lee Kit will come to Japan and create his installation in one of the gallery spaces. This is going to be the first time in two years for Lee Kit to show his new artworks in Japan after his solo exhibition at The Hara Museum of Contemporary Art. We would like to keep a close watch on how the artist defines his artistic practice and expresses himself while dealing with the current turbulent political climate, especially in his hometown of Hong Kong.
In another gallery space, the latest artwork from EARS WITH CHAIR series will be installed by Yukio Fujimoto for the first time in Japan and other artworks will be presented by Masaya Chiba, who is preparing for his solo exhibition at the Tokyo Opera City Art Gallery in October, and Anju Michele, whose artworks will be exhibited in The Vision of Contemporary Art（VOCA）at the Ueno Royal Museum. It is going to be full of lively artworks, so please visit us and enjoy our latest group show.
