Established in 1967, Whitestone Gallery is a leading Japanese gallery presenting a broad spectrum of Japanese art from the post-war to contemporary in spaces across East Asia.
First opening in central Tokyo, the gallery was well placed to participate in Tokyo’s post-war, modern artistic revival. Since the late 1970s, Whitestone Gallery has operated in Tokyo’s affluent neighbourhood of Ginza, where it now has two spaces.
Over the past decade, Whitestone Gallery has rapidly expanded its influence on Asian art. In 2012, the gallery established and became the parent organisation of Karuizawa New Art Museum, a private museum in one of Japan’s most popular resort towns.
In 2015 and 2016 consecutively, Whitestone Gallery opened two new spaces in Hong Kong, which were merged in 2018 in a two-floor exhibition space in the H Queen’s art complex. In 2017, the gallery took another major step to building broader regional connections with a new space in Taipei. While expanding to an international stage, the gallery remains dedicated first and foremost to Japanese talent.
