Metropolitan Pavilion, New York City

New Year’s Greeting

For the inaugural Metro Show in January 2012, Gallery Yukiko Koide Presents shows turn-of-the 20th century Japanese woodblock prints: the pattern design of Korin Furuya (Japanese, 1875-1910), a fascinating artistic cross-pollination of East and West in the Art Nouveau era. This is a rare opportunity to see these original woodblock prints, which are rarely displayed in museum shows. Please visit us at the booth #202 at the Metro Show.

Yukiko Koide started her career as curator of the corporate gallery of Shiseido Company Ltd in Tokyo. She became an independent curator in 1990 with a move to Chicago, where she organized numerous exhibitions of American self-taught artists and vernacular designs. Returning to Japan, she continued to organize shows and publish books, opening her eponymous gallery in 2003. Her most recent project was a comprehensive exhibition of the work of Henry Darger at Laforet Museum Harajuku in Tokyo, their most popular show ever. Looking forward to seeing you in New York.
