Earlier this year, the effects of the Great East Japan Earthquake led to the postponement of ART FAIR TOKYO, which had been established as an art event held annually during the cherry blossom season. With thanks to all those who offered support, we are very pleased to be able to hold the sixth edition of the fair at the end of July.
In spite of the postponement, ART FAIR TOKYO 2011 will take place at the Tokyo International Forum and feature 133 galleries which is the almost same number as that of the originally scheduled time, covering a wide range of artworks from antiques, arts and crafts, nihionga, and modern art to contemporary art. In addition, we are currently planning a program of related-events including talk series and charity programs. Those events will be themed on the notion that art can contribute to the recovery efforts for a society in the midst of this crisis by functioning as an interactive platform to exchange various ideas.
Despite the current situation, ART FAIR TOKYO will continue to seek to demonstrate the attractions of Tokyo, Japan’s capital city, where traditional and modern culture co-exist with our theme of “open art,” and also work towards the development of the Japanese art market.
We look forward to welcoming you at ART FAIR TOKYO 2011.
