Art Fair Tokyo: between nihonga and video

Published on 

Antiques and crafts, ‘nihonga' (traditional painting) and modern art, contemporary art, photography, linocuts, and art videos will light up the halls of the 11th edition of Art Fair Tokyo.

Whether regional or international, annual, biennial, triennial, or quadrennial (as in Rome), contemporary art events are above all a meeting place for gallery owners, collectors, curators, museum directors, personalities, art lovers and, of course, artists. Expansion, emancipation, and anticipation are the hallmarks of these events, which reflect the vitality of the sector.
The aura of these shows leads to redefinitions of contemporary aesthetics and trends in design. They vitalise the art market, support rising stars through the sale of numerous works, and provide an international showcase for local artists. These often-prestigious events unveil the richness of cultures and provide insights into the host country. Similarly, they serve as bridgeheads for cultural exchange.
