JCAT, short for Japanese Contemporary Artists Team in New York, is teaming up with Pleiades Gallery in Chelsea, where the works of the world’ s top artists are on display, to produce the WE exhibition. JCAT and Pleiades Gallery will showcase 100 of Japan’s modern artists and their artworks. JCAT’s mission statement is “ART for Everyone, Everyday. ” JCAT provides all Japanese artists the opportunity to present their works in New York City and worldwide. The goal of the WE exhibit is even greater though – to build bridges and to bring people together through promoting Japan’s culture in New York and worldwide through Japan’s art and artists. This “Connecting the World” concept also means “Connecting with You.” JCAT is working to provide the artists a team-oriented space, one where each artist is supported by the JCAT team.
JCAT, short for Japanese Contemporary Artists Team in New York, is a unique, creative team based in New York. Our mission is to represent, talented Japanese artists from around the world and to assist these artists on the path to successful careers. We scout talented artists of all disciplines, spread the word about their talent through our online database and through yearly exhibitions, and open doors of opportunity so each of our artists can pursue their passion and make a living off of that talent. We believe that every artist deserves to create a career from what they love to do, and JCAT is here to make that a reality.

Art performances using contemporary movement pieces are a formof entertainment that go beyond the live speed painting area. Colorhythm Risa became active in this genre overseas after appearing in hyperJapan in London in 2016. Her art expresses enjoyment that crosses generations and ethnicities, viewed through dynamic movements combined with music. Her goal is to create art that forms a shared emotional response which leads to communication. This will be demonstrated through her live speed painting performance in this opening event.
