Takeshi Kawashima Art Factory
An art gallery with a view of the sea
Kawashima Takeshi is an artist who was born in 1930 in Takamatsu City. In 1963, he moved to the United States, choosing to live in New York City—a place that also influenced Kagawa-born artist, Inokuma Genichiro. For 53 years, until he returned to Kagawa in 2016, Kawashima continued to pursue his art based in New York.
The Takeshi Kawashima Art Factory is both Kawashima’s studio where he creates his art and a gallery where his work is exhibited. The gallery, which was originally a factory manufacturing parts for medical equipment, is located at the foot of Goshikidai Highland, overlooking the ocean and the islands of the Seto Inland Sea. The atmosphere of the old factory and Kawashima’s artworks blend together in the gallery space.
Among the artworks on permanent display, you will find a piece from the “Red and Black” series, which is included in the collection of The Museum of Modern Art in New York. Also on display in a corner of the gallery is an assortment of African art that Kawashima collected while he was living in the SoHo neighborhood of New York City.
