Announcement of The Satani Gallery Archives Release



In 1978 in Kyobashi, Tokyo, Kazuhiko Satani opened Satani Gallery with its inaugural exhibition, Max Ernst & Yves Tanguay Prints – A Two-person Show. From then on, he dealt with a total of 199 artists and their artworks and held 164 exhibitions in his lifetime. Those artists include, but not limited to, Paul Klee, Jean Arp, Jackson Pollock, Christo, Josef Albers, Shuzo Takiguchi, Jikken Kobo (Experimental Workshop) and Masaaki Yamada.

Based on 132 catalogues, printed materials, 7 books, diaries and artifacts left behind over 30 years, we researched and archived a complete picture of Kazuhiko Satani and Satani Gallery. Its contents are published as a bilingual website with the following distinctive.

1. Information of all exhibitions of Satani Gallery (including exhibition view)
2. Information of all printed materials of Satani Gallery (including contributors and article titles)
3. Search index by names of artists and authors
4. All afterwards written by Kazuhiko Satani (partially bilingual)
5. Record of Kazuhiko Satani’s interaction with Shuzo Takiguchi, whom he admired.

Through this archive, we hope to share with you the passion for art that Satani Gallery embodied, and to help you further your research into the world of contemporary Japanese art.

With thanks to the art dealer Kazuhiko Satani.
