July Exhibit: Shoko Nakazawa
New Works by Shoko Nakazawa
July 17-August 15, 2021
Starting mid-July we kick off a three show run of all Japanese artists, presented in conjunction with The Little Hut, How2Work, and Paradise Toys! Up first, a new exhibit by none other than Shoko Nakazawa!
Perhaps best known for her adorable Byron character and sofubi, Shoko is a talented designer, painter and sculptor and we are excited to be hosting her second US solo exhibit in partnership with The Little Hut. The exhibit title, Ichijitsu Senshu, loosely translates to "when you're waiting for something impatiently one day seems like a thousand autumns." Given how the last year or so has gone, it's a sentiment I'm sure we can all relate to!
Original works will be available first to members of our previews email list...sign up at previews.rotofugi.com to receive an email when works are available — we try to have a preview out a day or two before an exhibit opens. Sofubi/figure releases will be available first to attendees of exhibit's opening weekend, with online sales of remaining stock to be made available via our website in the week following.
The exhibit will be open for viewing at Rotofugi, 2780 N. Lincoln Ave., Chicago beginning Saturday, July 17, 10am-6pm, however, we are being cautious and will not be holding an opening reception.
Ichijitsu Senshu continues through August 15th or view online at gallery.rotofugi.com.
