Our upcoming exhibition will showcase a selection of recent works by the Chinese artist Chen Jiang-Hong. It will highlight the artist’s inner journeys, inspired by his travels around the world. This exhibition resonates with the play entitled “The Little Red Guard,” which will be presented at the Théâtre du Rond Point des Champs-Élysées at the same time. This play is an adaptation of Chen’s autobiographical work, who grew up in a China shaken by the Cultural Revolution.
Exhibition from May 23 to June 03, 2023.
Founded by Kiyoshi Taménaga in Tokyo in 1969, Galerie Taménaga opened two additional spaces in Osaka and Paris in 1971. In 2021, fifty years to the day after the inauguration of the Parisian branch, a new gallery was established in the city of Kyoto.
Galerie Taménaga was the first Japanese art gallery specialized in Western masters. As such, it has in its collection many masterpieces by Impressionist and Modern masters (such as Bonnard, Chagall, Derain, Dufy, Picasso, Redon, Renoir, Utrillo, Van Dongen, etc.) and continues to work on representation and advice to collectors.
In parallel, the gallery is also dedicated to the discovery and support of contemporary artists, such as its now-established artists: Chen Jiang-Hong, Takehiko Sugawara, Kyosuke Tchinaï, Tamihito Yoshikawa, as well as American Tom Christopher, or Spaniard Lorenzo Fernandez.
More recently, the gallery has been committed to showcasing the work of young Japanese talents. For some who have just graduated, their respective works are considered true revelations, positioning the gallery as one of the major defenders of the contemporary Japanese art scene.
