Ronin Gallery, Globus Washitsu, and ONBEAT Magazine announce that Masahiko Minami has been named the winner of the 2024 Ronin Globus Onbeat Artist-in-Residence Program.
This April, our distinguished panel of judges chose Minami based on three criteria: artistic excellence, clarity of concept, and originality.
As artist-in-residence, he will receive round-trip airfare between Tokyo and New York, accommodation at Globus Washitsu, and a studio space. During his stay in New York Minami will be featured in a solo exhibition at Ronin Gallery.
Following his return to Japan, he will receive a dedicated editorial in our next issue “ONBEAT vol.21”.
