The Taguchi Art Collection, which was started by Misumi Group Inc’s founder, Hiroshi Taguchi, consists about 380 worldwide contemporary art pieces (as of Feb. 2017 ).

Taguchi established “Misumi Art Collection” focusing on American pop art while his serving as the President of Misumi Group Inc., and it became as a pathfinder for future corporative art in Japan. Since then, this private art collection continues to add not only paintings and prints from America but various medium works such as photos, videos and mixed media from all over the world including domestic works of art.

Taguchi Art collection doesn’t hold a particular exhibition space and depending on the request by museums or other organizations we exhibit the exhibition at everywhere in Japan.

Our goals are to contribute to promoting contemporary art through showing the extraordinary works of art.
