Art For Japan | Thanks from the ISE Cultural Foundation
I’m excited to announce that this past Tuesday’s event, ART FOR JAPAN, the ISE Cultural Foundation‘s fundraising event for the earthquake and Tsunami victims in Japan, raised $6,535.00 via three hours of sales of donated artwork. Since the ISE Cultural Foundation plans on matching that amount with its own donation, the total amount will come to $13,070.00!
100% of these funds will be donated to the NPO in Iwate, Miyagi and Fukushima prefectures though the Japanese American Association of New York.
The ISE Cultural Foundation would like to express their sincere appreciation to all artists who donated their work and all volunteers who worked hard for this cause.
Anagnorisis Fine Arts is a proud recipient of the ISE Cultural Foundation‘s Program for Emerging Curators.
About the ISE:
The Japanese based ISE Cultural Foundation Gallery was established in 1984 as a non-profit organization to support mostly emerging, under-represented artists and curators by providing the opportunities of exhibition in New York City.
They have held various projects such as the “Asia Art Series” which introduced artists from many Asian countries to the US audience to help engender an international cultural exchange. Since 2002 they have focused on their “Program for Emerging Curators” (PEC) project, which gives emerging curators an opportunity to organize their exhibition in their gallery space SOHO, NY. PEC is an open call program for curators all over the world, and has had more than 30 PEC exhibitions to date. Their consistent effort to provide an experimental and alternative venue for curators and artists has been recognized by many great journals over the years such as the New York Times, New Yorker, Art in America, TimeOut NY, Village VOICE and many others.
ISE Cultural Foundation have also held public artist talks and lectures by highly established artists including Alex Katz, Mariko Mori, Jack Pierson, and Ushio Shinohara.
