at Mori Arts Center Gallery
in the Roppongi, Nogizaka area
This event has ended - (2010-01-30 - 2010-01-31)
Last January “Art@Agnes” was held for the final time. There is still no official word on whether “101Tokyo” is happening this April. Certainly seems like a brave time to be starting a new art fair. But this is at Mori and nothing is impossible. A strong selection of the capital’s top contemporary art galleries have gathered together in one place for “G-tokyo 2010”.
Rather than the vast maze-like sprawl common to many other art fairs, “G-tokyo 2010” is structured in three modest tiers, making for an art fair experience that is thankfully not a marathon. Instead of volume, the organizers have concentrated on presentation and curation. Each of the galleries is allotted a huge booth, sometimes larger than the actual gallery’s real exhibition space. Wide, wooden corridors allow visitors to stand back and take in the works. Very chic. Very Mori.
