Yamamoto Keiko Rochaix is a contemporary art gallery in Spitalfields, East London. It strives to introduce emerging and mid-career artists from the UK and across the globe whose works are inspired by themes of light, space, sound, and ambiguity of identity. Each exhibition is the fruit of a deeply involved cooperative process between the artists and the gallery in order to offer the audience an opportunity to experience the artists’ coherent universe.
We have strong ties with artists from various national and cultural backgrounds, including Asia, Africa and minority groups within Europe. Such roster of artists may be a reflection of the director, a Japanese transplant in London, and her personal empathy for work that embodies the sense of marginal and new perspective for life and society in general. This philosophy naturally has led to the emphasis the gallery places upon producing exhibitions that further cross-cultural dialogue and inclusion.
