Ippodo Gallery, which is based in Tokyo and New York, is proud to announce that it will participate in the SOFA Chicago (Sculpture Objects Functional Art + Design) exhibition again this year from November 5-8, 2015. This year will mark the fifth consecutive year that Ippodo has participated in this renowned exhibition.

We will be introducing the most current works by over 18 contemporary Japanese artists selected from a wide range of fields including: bronze, ceramics, porcelain, glass, lacquerware, metal, painting, calligraphy, and photography.
These works - which display an exquisite pairing of skill and sense of design, combined with refined aesthetics - are representative of the fine caliber of art crafts in Japan today. These artists have not simply inherited traditional techniques or adopted the philosophies of contemporary art, rather, their works truly embody the world of SurJaponisme.
