Art for Breakfast 2021: Noriko Kashiwagi | ART PLATFORM TOKYOVIEW EVENT DETAILS
March 10 - "Art World in Tokyo Through the Looking Glass"
In an effort to build a discussion platform for arts & culture, Art for Breakfast is delighted to invite Noriko Kashiwagi, Director of ART PLATFORM TOKYO. The discussion is titled, “ART WORLD IN TOKYO THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS – Unique Challenges and Prospects of Local Artists”.
Venturing into art from the financial industry and learning her craft as an appraiser in New York, Ms. Kashiwagi was a Japanese art industry outsider when she started. She is in the inside now, but her views of the Japanese art scene is objective and to the point shedding light on how things need to change for the next generation of artists. She founded ART PLATFORM TOKYO to provide emerging artists with an alternative channel to showcase their works and to introduce their voices to the outside world. Thinking out of the box, her “gallery” and exhibition space is open 24 hours a day – utilizing the vast wall space at ANA InterContinental Tokyo where she puts together several exhibitions a year. Please join us to learn about her journey, the unique challenges and prospects that local artists have and how she is connecting the dots to open up and bring change to the art scene.
Noriko Kashiwagi is Director of ART PLATFORM TOKYO, a platform to introduce and market emerging artists based in Tokyo. She grew up as a TCK (third cultural kid), living in Tokyo and in NYC. She has B.A. in Philosophy and B.S. in Psychology, and M.A. in Journalism, and still makes both NYC and Tokyo her home. After working in finance on Wall Street and in Tokyo, she ventured into the world of art, becoming an appraiser in NYC. With years of experience supporting emerging artists in Tokyo, mostly those who have ambitions to exhibit their works abroad, she founded ART PLATFORM TOKYO in 2017, showcasing their artworks at ANA InterContinental Hotel in Akasaka.
