Starting on February 13th, a show organized by Hellion Gallery will be showing in Tokyo at the Hatos Bar. It’s appropriate that the 2nd annual Ema Show will start in Japan as the concept was to have artists paint the small wooden plaques on which Shinto worshipers write their prayers or wishes. Each participant was given three of the Ema plaques, so there will be two more left for future shows at Hellion’s Portland space (April 7th) and Galerie Artistik Rezo in Paris (June 21st).
The roster this year include: AJ Fosik, Maryanna Hoggatt, Eric Wert, Nosego, Ben Venom, Casey Weldon, Souther Salazar, Olivia Knapp, Jon MacNair, Mary Iverson, Robert Bowen, Jesse Hazelip, Karilise Alexander, Andrew Schoultz (seen ab0ve), Josh Keyes, Stephanie Buer, KozynDan, Zach Johnsen, Ren Sakurai, Yoskay Yamamoto, Koralie, Jean Jullien, Amandine Urruty, Nicolas Barrome, Alexone, Koleo, JM Ouvry, Haroshi, Tamaki Mori, Nino, MHAK, Renan Santos, Heather Mclean, Kojiro Ankan Takukawa, Ewa Prończuk-Kuziak, Peca, Joram Roukes, Dilka Bear, SAL, Jeff P and Yu Maeda.
