about us




Yamakiwa Gallery is an alternative art space set in a traditional Japanese farmer’s house in mountains near Niigata.
The gallery runs residency programme for artists and curators that supports their research and exhibition making.

The Art Hotel which started in 2016 invites visitors to spend the night at the gallery and have a closer experience with the surroundings, eating local food prepared by the village neighbours.

The gallery opens opportunities for exchange and sharing between artists, visitors and the local residents.
