|ART FAIR TOKYO 2011 (21.1.2011)|
||ART FAIR TOKYO is the largest fair of its kind in Japan, featuring high-quality domestic and international galleries covering a wide range of genres and periods of artworks from antiques, arts and crafts, nihonga, and modern art to contemporary art. ART FAIR TOKYO began in 2005, and since 2007, it has been held at the Tokyo International Forum in each April, during the cherry blossom season. ART FAIR TOKYO offers the opportunity to enjoy and purchase art across genres and periods, and celebrates the wonders of Tokyo's art scene. In 2011, Deutsche Bank Group has recently agreed to be a Main Sponsor of ART FAIR TOKYO for the first time, and AFT will return to the Tokyo International Forum with a total of 134 galleries from Friday, April 1 – Sunday, April 3 (Preview: Thursday, March 31). |
ART FAIR TOKYO 2010 held in April 2010, attracted a record 50,000 visitors over its four days (including the preview day), art fans around the world had gathered and vibrant sales has been made during the course of the fair. This proved that ART FAIR TOKYO has established itself as one of the representative art fairs of Japan. Furthermore, through the past consecutive holdings, ART FAIR TOKYO has become widely recognized in Japan, and the organizational structure has been firmly fixed up.
For ART FAIR TOKYO 2011, we will hold an international vision that concerns: ‘Tokyo as the city of Asia’. Not only by holding a regular fair but by improving in the area of related-events and programmes, ART FAIR TOYKO will develop into a new original fair, different to that of London and Hong Kong.
At the same time, as ART FAIR TOKYO will be held in the capital city of Japan, Tokyo - a rare city where traditional and modern coexists- we will use its potentiality by collaborating with the art scene and demonstrate it carefully yet dynamically to the rest of the world.
We look forward to welcoming you at ART FAIR TOKYO 2011.
