They operate mainly on artist’s solo exhibitions and planned exhibitions, based on the philosophy of supporting overlooked young talented artist and helping them at the market. In “Kodama Gallery | Tennoz“, at active space with a ceiling height about 5 meters, it has become possible to introduce actively experimental exhibitions by video / installation-based artists that had been developed in Kyoto’s space that was closed in 2015.


The gallery “URANO” plans on exhibitions and projects which focus on domestic and foreign artists who are leading the next generation, while clearly reflects contemporaneity. The gallery “ARATANIURANO” at Minato-ku Shirokane was renamed as “URANO” when it moved and reopened in September 2016.
