Mariko Noda merges poetry and death in Osaka

Osaka, 30 October 2013, Art Media Agency (AMA). Japanese gallery Tezukayama is to present “Hope”, of works by artist  Mariko Noda. The exhibition is to take place in Osaka from 23 November to 21 December 2013.

In May 2013, the artist participated in Young Art Taipei, Taiwan’s contemporary art fair, where she exhibited her series of paintings entitled...

Taiwan, 14 May 2013, Art Media Agency (AMA). Contemporary art fair Young Art Taipei will have its fifth edition held from 17 to 19 May 2013 at the Sheraton Grand Hotel. Created in 2009 after the world financial crisis, this contemporary art fair established itself in Asia by focusing on emerging young artists under 45. Last year, Young Art Taipei gathered 60 galleries from all over the world and managed to sell over 600 works for a total of $1.38m. This year again, 60 international galleries such as Amelie Art Gallery, FUMA Contemporary Tokyo | BUNKYO ART and Span Art Gallery will come and display the works of contemporary artists. Richard Chang, the director of the fair, hopes to foster the event on an international scale. The fair will be punctuated by three events: the Young Art Award, the Yearly Theme Project and the Art Forum. The Young Art Award enables exhibitors to spotlight the work of one of their artists, an emerging creator with great potential, so his work can be seen by the jury. As for the Yearly Theme Project, it gives to represented artists the opportunity to create a work on one proposed...
