Opened in Osaka in 1999 and then relocated to Kyoto in 2008, Kodama Gallery is a contemporary art gallery based in the Kansai district. The Tokyo branch was opened in 2004 in Kagurazaka and relocated to the so-called ‘Shirokane gallery building’ in January 2008. The gallery represents Ryoko Aoki, Daisuke Nakayama, Chihiro Mori, and other artists who are based in Osaka or West Japan. Organizing ‘Kodama Gallery Project,’ it actively introduces young emerging artists. Kodama has participated in the Armory Show (NY), ART BASEL ‘LISTE,’ and many other international art fairs.
