Tuesday night, I went to the last opening night of Ikkan Gallery in Singapore. This gallery opened in May 2011 and has shown a staggering array of modern and contemporary artists. This last show features teamLab , a group of techno-artists that I was introduced to by Ikkan Sanada several years ago. Although it is their last show at Ikkan Gallery, their presence in Singapore will remain as they now have permanent installations at The Arts Science Museum, The National Museum, and Marina Bay Sands.
I am going to miss attending the gallery openings which not only introduced me to art in its many and varied forms but also to art lovers. The people who attended the openings were as interesting, to me, as the art that they came to appreciate. I am forever grateful to Ikkan and Miho for inviting me to the openings, and allowing me a peek into a fantastical world.
