Situated on a narrow street between upscale Gaien-nishi Dori street and a historical slope that dates back to medieval Tokyo, MAHO KUBOTA GALLERY opened in March 2016, specializing in contemporary art. The gallery space is located in Jingumae, an area of cultural crossover where Harajuku and Aoyama overlap. The location ensures easy access from anywhere in Central Tokyo.
Since its opening, the gallery has presented works by artists who highlight gender issues, later including artists who use a cognitive psychology approach in practices exploring what happens when people view art, in terms of how processes in the human brain respond to art and instigate contemplation. Another interest is works by artists who give poetic expression to the history of human creativity and the richness of human intellect by building on universal narratives that transcend temporal and geographical considerations.
People who come into daily contact with art and make it an integral part of their way of living experience the great chemistry that art brings to life. The gallery attempts to provide a space where such viewers can encounter free and open experimentation through exhibitions with the potential to plant powerful memories that grow to inspire independent thought and exploration.
