This year, the exhibition venue will be held at its regularly accessible location, the Tokyo International Forum (@FORUM) in Marunouchi area. A second additional venue will also be held at a new site, the TOKYO BLDG. TOKIA. GALLERIA. (@TOKIA) which is conveniently situated directly across from the first venue. This space will be served as a special feature of ART FAIR TOKYO2009 and introduce 29 fresh contemporary art galleries all of which have been established within the past five years. We are pleased to present a world of cutting-edge art by artists of our time who herald the next generation of the art scene.
The fair will be open to public for three days including the weekend of April 3 to 5, 2009. Taking into consideration the increased number of participating exhibitors, and the expansion of space, we are thus expected to attract more visitors than in the past.
ART FAIR TOKYO will make TOKYO a must-go destination where cultivates stimulating dialogues between artists, galleries, collectors, critics and curators from all over the world.
