hpgrp GALLERY NEW YORK and GALLERY KOGURE are pleased to present Here Where We Are, a show of work by Alumni from the New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) Immigrant Artist Mentoring Program curated by Sophia Chizuco.

Here Where We Are is an exhibition that examines the concepts of “place” and “belonging” from immigrant perspectives. This exhibition brings together the work of six international artists currently working in New York; Liene Bosquê (Brazil), Sophia Chizuco (Japan), Isabelle Garbani (France), Liesl Pfeffer (Australia), Claudia Sohrens (Germany), and Julio Austria (Philippines). While ranging in mediums from installation, to print, to photography and paintings, all six artists share the bonds of having met in New York while creating work in keeping with their cultural heritage. These varied works create the Here while the physical exhibition serves as the Where We Are.

Sophia Chizuco is a multidisciplinary artist based in Brooklyn, New York. Born in Japan, she earned her B.A. in Art and Education from Tokyo Gakugei University. In 2000 she moved to New York to study abstract paintings with Larry Poons at the Art Students League of New York and earned a certificate in painting for her studies. She has since shown throughout New York and internationally. In 2013 and 2014, Chizuco served as a mentor in NYFA’ s Immigrant Artist Mentoring Program.
