Sprout Curation Statement:
"At Sprout, in addition to editing & publishing project, we’ve decided to launch a gallery space Sprout Curation as a new attempt. I would like to take this opportunity to humbly inform you our establishment.
For years, I have met many talented artists through editing and publishing project of Sprout magazine. Through this experience, I have always had a strong thought that by putting a spot light on their work from different angle to the way of their solo exhibition, we may able to see a new context.
Sprout Curation aims to create a space of rising new context in Japanese art through curatorial space from such editor’s point of view and feature exhibitions with themes.
Living in an age of uncertainty, we would like to bear small possibilities that artists rise in our mind, and convey pleasure of art to more people and more further.
I am little embarrassed to be called an art dealer. Personally I think a term like city’s curator would rather fit to my position.
The gallery will be placed at Kiyosumi-shirakawa in a building where top japanese galleries are reside in.
The opening is Saturday 27th November. I will inform you further information and I am dearly looking forward to seeing everyone at the new environment again."
Sprout Curation, Yoshikazu Shiga
