Narrow stairs lead up to the second floor of Keith Rivers’s residence in a posh, hilly area of Beverly Hills. The first thing you see when you arrive is a large brick wall in various shades of gray. The blocks are drawn on two thick sheets of paper. They form a perfect order, rare in real-life partitions. The work is by Tony Lewis, a Chicago-based African American artist whose creations address themes of power, race and working-class labor. He began drawing to stimulate the process at a time when he felt that he had hit a wall conceptually. Laying brick upon brick made him feel serene.

Rivers owns the drawing and found in it an echo of his past life. “I love this work because it is an exercise in repetition. Doing a process over and over again to accomplish something bigger. And that was football for me. Repeating a play over and over again with a goal,” says Rivers, 37, who played at the professional level for the Cincinnati Bengals, New York Giants and Buffalo Bills.

Art Week Tokyo (AWT) is an art festival in Japan that was founded in 2021, focusing on the nation’s rich and often overlooked post-war and contemporary art scene. It takes place every year in early November, with several thousands of art lovers flocking to the city of Tokyo to explore an eclectic mix of practices across the participating institutions. This year’s edition ran from November 2-5, 2023, and saw a sizable audience turnout.

Here are four of the most compelling exhibitions that visitors to the art fair were treated to in 2023:

Miwa Ogasawara’s Himmel at Maho Kubota Gallery channelled personal loss through visions of the sky

Miwa Ogasawara’s paintings imagine profound moments captured through mundane scenes such as quiet rooms and deep forests. Her works are predominantly tinted bluish-grey and are composed with extremely light brushstrokes. Her recent series is titled after the German word for “sky” or “heaven” and comes in the wake of a deep personal loss suffered by the artist in 2022.
