Blum & Poe

Los Angeles - New York - Tokyo

Blum & Poe is pleased to present a selection of work by artists from Japan and Korea—reflecting the significance of their artistic practices within the gallery’s program long rooted in championing the histories of these regions. The gallery has been committed to showing artists from Japan since its founding in 1994, following Tim Blum's early years as an art dealer and curator spent in Tokyo in the early '90s. Originating in various museum-level historical survey exhibitions curated by leading figures within their fields, Blum & Poe has fostered relationships with artists ranging from the Korean postwar movement of Dansaekhwa, to pioneers of the Japanese postwar group Mono-ha, to those who carried forward artistic experimentation in Japan in the 1980s and ‘90s, and today. Blum & Poe opened in Tokyo in 2014 with a desire to further support its Asia-based artists, who represent a third of the gallery’s roster. Six years later on the occasion of South South Veza’s OVR, this presentation showcases a diversity in practices with works by Kōji Enokura, Ha Chong–hyun, Yukie Ishikawa, Susumu Koshimizu, Kwon Young-woo, Kazumi Nakamura, Kenjiro Okazaki, Nobuo Sekine, Kishio Suga, Yukinori Yanagi, Yun Hyong–keun, and Zhu Jinshi.
