Chihiro Kabata at Gallery αM


Gallery αM is holding a show of its MFA graduate Chihiro Kabata. The exhibition Stratosphere—Tracing the “Self” is curated by Masayuki Tanaka. It will open tomorrow, April 2nd and go on through May 7.

I wrote about Kabata’s ball point pen paintings and sculpture on several occasions (see blog archive), and I am delighted to see the recognition she is beginning to receive. The artist’s work is now featured in the MOT group exhibition Nearest Faraway (on view through May 8th). Her first international solo show (which I curated) is forthcoming just a few days after the αM Gallery opening: it will be held at the Institute of Contemporary Art in Singapore April 8th–May 7th.
