Tokyo Art Fair

The annual Tokyo Art Fair will be held in 2012 between March 3oth and April 1st promises to build on the successes of the previous 5 events. It will be held in the Tokyo International Forum (near Yurakucho Station). Here is a message from the homepage (http://www.artfairtokyo.com/en/)
We are pleased to announce that ART FAIR TOKYO 2012 will be held over in the coming cherry blossom season, and that for the second consecutive year we welcome Deutsche Bank Group as the Main Sponsor. The fair will present artworks from a range of genres and periods, including antiques, crafts, nihonga, modern art and the latest contemporary art as always, and will feature a total of the more than 160 participating galleries and cooperating partners from Japan and overseas. This year, ART FAIR TOKYO 2012 is expanding our venue, taking up all of the Tokyo International Forum Exhibition Hall aiming for further development with fascinating programs and related-events. Launched in 2011 as an experimental exhibition, “Artistic Practices” becomes a special section this year retracing Japanese art history with high-quality works ranging from antiques to contemporary art and projects. Having our international vision of “Tokyo as a city within Asia”, we proudly launch “Discover Asia” – a new section where prominent galleries from Asian major cities, such as Seoul, Taipei, and Beijing, participate at ART FAIR TOKYO 2012 along with museums and Japanese galleries that have been receiving an international acclaim. In addition, as the “PROJECTS” section is setting up within the Exhibition Hall this year, the section not only features the usual participations of international young galleries, but has a new section, “project in PROJECTS”, which dynamically presents the large-scale works of the latest Asia-Pacific art going beyond the confines of a regular booth. Through the course of the event, ART FAIR TOKYO 2012 hosts many original programs and new related-events in collaboration with the other creative industries, such as “food” and “fashion”. It is our hope that all of you enjoy a unique experience to discover the joys of “purchasing art”.
