Art in Park Hotel Tokyo 2017
This event has ended.
For the second installment of this art fair, held under the same theme as the previous fair - “The Past and Future of Contemporary Art” - a total of 39 galleries will participate. Established galleries that form the foundation of the Japanese art scene and mid-career galleries introducing upcoming artists will present their recommended artworks throughout the hotel rooms, which are set up as galleries. One characteristic of this fair is the participation of many galleries outside of Tokyo; accomplished galleries in the Kansai region of Japan, South Korea and Taiwan will introduce artists and artworks rarely exhibited in Tokyo. In total there are 13 Tokyo-based, 23 non-Tokyo-based, 1 South Korea-based and 2 Taiwan-based galleries participating. This fair is the perfect chance to experience art in an intimate setting.
