We’re please to be able to announce that Yoshihito Kawase has won the 2019 Ronin|Globus Artist-in-Residence Program, in initiative that Spoon & Tamago has supported since its inception both as judge and media partner.
As artist-in-residence, Yoshihito Kawase will be the featured artist in Ronin Gallery’s summer exhibition, Contemporary Talents of Japan (July 9– July 26 and Aug 20– Aug 29, 2019). In addition, he will receive a three-week residency at Brooklyn Botanic Garden, a one month stay at Globus Washitsu in central Manhattan, a tatami mat studio space, a stipend, and transportation between Tokyo and NYC.
