Art Fair Tokyo which is the largest art fair in Japan, recorded over 53,000 visitors which was the highest number ever. 143?exhibitors were not only from Japan but from other Asian countries such as Korea, Taiwan and Hong Kong. Unlike other art fairs, Art Fair Tokyo accepts many kinds of genres not only contemporary but antiques and crafts. Take a look at the show from following photos.
This year, new art guide tours were planned for this fair which were quickly filled up after it opened the application. We joined one of them and will report on it too. About the special exhibition “Shuffle 2″ which mixed up the antique works with contemporary art will be in another report.
