The Gallery hosts two types of exhibitions – traveling exhibitions and exhibitions original to JAPAN HOUSE LA. Traveling exhibitions rotate between all three JAPAN HOUSE galleries located in Los Angeles, London and Sao Paulo. Other exhibitions are unique to JAPAN HOUSE LA, conceptualized and developed by its curatorial team for American and international audiences, and often partner with Japanese and American individuals and organizations.
Gallery tours guided by the curatorial staff can be arranged upon request.
Each exhibition is accompanied by related programs such as art talks, live demonstrations and family-friendly workshops, which provide an immersive and memorable experience for visitors. The programs are held in the Level 2 sub-gallery area, the Level 5 Salon, or off-site with partnering organizations. In most cases, the exhibition artists travel to Los Angeles to help celebrate the public opening and to engage with visitors.
JAPAN HOUSE Los Angeles’ Level 2 was designed by multidisciplinary artist Kohei Nawa. His works have been presented in notable international galleries including Musée du Louvre, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Pace Gallery, and more.
