GALLERY RIN opened in April 2013 in Kyobashi, Tokyo with the concept of introducing an array of works that exude beauty in various ways.
Making use of the geographical advantage of Kyobashi Kotto-Dori, an area known for antique dealers, we handle a variety of exhibitions related to beauty that transcend time,
from antique to contemporary art, as well as crafts.
As we continue to focus on discovering and presenting contemporary works of art that promise to remain relevant for future ages, we will further showcase our artists by organizing special exhibitions at our gallery as well as participating in Art Fairs.
