Against the tradition of art hierarchy, Aki Kuroda was highly approved as the youngest artist in Japan, who held his solo exhibitions in The National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo in 1993 and The National Museum of Art, Osaka in 1994. 

Hangar Brussels welcomes leading Japanese artist AKI KURODA - BelgianBoutique

Hangar will be unveiling the masterly work of the Japanese artist Aki Kuroda as of 19 April 2018.  In this first one-man show of the artist in Belgium (since 1995), visitors will discover a series of new works  (2016/2017) plus several emblematic paintings. Through his works, Aki Kuroda takes us to a world laden with ancient myths and stories from his country, Japan.

For this show Aki Kuroda wanted to work together with both architects and young artists. Together with Belgo-Russian artits Marcin Sobolev, Aki Kuroda will produce an installation composed of flowers and joint artistic creations. A life-size Cosmogarden… 

Hangar also proposed a cooperation with students of interior architecture at the Mons school of art, Arts2, to build an ephemeral teahouse. This project, in line with Aki’s world and drawings, blends in with the setting of the exhibition.

AKI KURODA from 19 april 19 to 13 juin 2018
18 place du Châtelain - 1050 Brussels
Tuesday - Saturday: 12 am - 6 pm
