Gallery G-77 was first established by owner and director Andrei Mikhilov in 2003 in St. Petersburg. It was one of the first galleries in Russia to represent contemporary international artists with a particular focus on Japan, where the gallery’s owner spent more than 10 years. In 2010 G-77 invited Izuru Mizutani who became the first Japanese contemporary artist to demonstrate his installation projects in the State Russian Museum. In November 2014 G-77 opened its new location in Kyoto city centre between Imperial Place and Nijo Castle. Gallery G-77 presentations reflect current trends in contemporary Japanese art. Unique artworks by young artists show an entirely original and Japanese approach.
