“CADAN: Gendai Bijutsu 2023” is an exhibition focusing on artists and presenting their works in a solo exhibition format, with 26 participants from member galleries of CADAN: Contemporary Art Dealers Association Nippon. It opens a platform for professionals such as artists, curators and gallerists to interact with collectors, art lovers and those interested in contemporary art.
The Contemporary Art Dealers Association was established in 2015 for the purpose of the promotion and developing contemporary art within Japan. Presently, the Association is comprised of 50 Japanese galleries and this event “CADAN Gendai Bijutsu 2023” is the 2nd edition; the 1st edition having been organized in 2020. This event differs from an art fair; the idea is based on an exhibition concept and returning to an original idea of seeing contemporary art purely, with each participating gallery exhibiting selected works in a highly considered context.
Special Presentation “Art in Good Company” will be held on the ship-shaped event space, T-LOTUS M, in collaboration between CADAN and partner companies that regularly work with CADAN. During the event, we are also organizing a series of talk events considering the topic “Art and Corporation”. We intend to introduce various efforts that companies are making in support of contemporary art. We are aiming to provide a place to think about Japanese contemporary art now and of the future.
