ART GALLERY Operations Staff 
Executive Director Sueo Mizuma opened Mizuma Art Gallery in Tokyo in 1994. Since then the gallery has continuously presented artists from Japan and, increasingly, the surrounding region, whose works possess distinctive sensibilities unaffected by fleeting stylistic trends.
Matching the rapid expansion of Asia's contemporary art market, Mizuma Art Gallery opened additional spaces in Beijing and in Singapore's Gillman Barracks in 2008 and 2012. In 2014 the artist residency space "Rumah Kijang Mizuma" opened in Yogyakarta, Indonesia, to support exchanges between local and Japanese artists.
The gallery participates actively in international art fairs including Art Basel Hong Kong and the Armory Show, and continues to support and promote a large number of internationally active artists.
