Destination Art Space, a gallery within an upscale boutique merging fashion and art, is excited to announce a group exhibition entitled “TORAPOTE - ride it! –“. This exhibition features nine New York based artists’ paintings, photographs, drawings, and a personal collection of vintage Japanese motorcycles.

The High Line finally opened after their long efforts, and this is one of the historical moments in New York. Plus, summer is around the corner! A lot of outdoor events are longing to see you. So, let’s go out with your TORAPOTE (means ‘transportation’ here)!

What would you ride? Trains, cars, motorcycles, airplanes, bikes, horses, or something else?

For this exhibition, the gallery walls will be filled with varied artwork of TORAPOTE by the selected artists. Perhaps, you will be able to discover a unique idea to fit your needs. This is an early summer exhibition that explores a broad meaning of transportation.

*Special thanks to Rodney Dickson for his motorcycle collection as a part of installation.
