Taro Nasu first opened his namesake contemporary art gallery in 1988, moving it in 2008 to its current, relatively large space, which was designed by architect Jun Aoki. The gallery represents two dozen well-established Japanese and international artists, many of them leaning toward the conceptual-art end of the spectrum, and there are six to eight shows each year.
They also publish art books and organize lecture series. Represented artists include Pierre Huyghe, Ryan Gander, Jonathan Monk, Futo Akiyoshi, Taiji Matsue and Tatsuo Majima.
Whlie you're here, be sure to check out the very tiny (13-square-meter) Taimatz Gallery, located in the display window at the front of the Taro Nasu gallery.
