The Tokyo branch of BLUM & POE, a contemporary art gallery that opened in 1994 in California, followed by the New York branch in 2014, the gallery's 20th anniversary.
The gallery has developed a program that spans a wide range of genres through exhibitions that introduce West Coast artists, known as Mono-ha, and other artists representing Japanese art since the 1980s, where the gallery is based. The gallery's first group exhibition in North America, which focused on the trends in Japanese post-war art, has received a great deal of attention in art historical discussions.
The gallery is also actively involved in organizing genre-neutral exhibitions, including solo shows by its artists at Tokyo Space.
