TOKYO.- ART FAIR TOKYO, the largest fair of its kind in Japan, began in 2005. This year it celebrates its fifth anniversary. ART FAIR TOKYO features a wide range of genres and periods of art, such as antiques, Asian art, nihonga, modern art, and contemporary art. ART FAIR TOKYO is where art enthusiasts, art collectors, journalists, and curators come together to seek artworks and confirm the latest trends of the art world. ART FAIR TOKYO 2010 will feature 139 top galleries, from Japan and around the world, -- showcasing a total of approximately three thousands artworks.

ART FAIR TOKYO was originally started to introduce the diversity and the fascination of the Japanese art scene. Through the past four editions, it has become known throughout the world as one of the most significant art fairs in Asia.

Since its debut in 2005, it has managed to spread its message to a new generation of potential collectors; that art is something to buy, not just something to look at. Recently, as the number of art collectors in Japan has increased, people in Japan have started to notice the enjoyment and the social significance of collecting ‘art.’

ART FAIR TOKYO will continue to encourage the further development of the Japanese art market by offering the opportunity to discover diverse and high-quality artworks. Furthermore, ART FAIR TOYKO 2010 attempts to make the fair even richer by inviting art collectors and journalists from Japan and overseas, and strengthening partnerships with other institutions, such as museums and hotels.

Art collections support living artists, make history and culture, and enrich our lives. ART FAIR TOKYO offers the opportunity to start collecting art and broaden the range of your art collection. You are sure to find the artwork that you want from the diverse exhibits at ART FAIR TOKYO.

One of ART FAIR TOKYO’s features is that it offers a range of special benefits to VIP cardholders. ART FAIR TOKYO will offer even more VIP programs than last year by strengthening partnerships with THE PENNINSULA TOKYO, Quintessentially and a range of domestic museums.

ART FAIR TOKYO should reflect not only the ‘present’ but also the ‘future’ art scenes. Following in the footstep of last year’s special section, @TOKIA, which was- devoted to emerging young galleries of contemporary art,—a special section that will be set up for new galleries of contemporary art in the Lobby Gallery. This time, it will be under that banner of PROJECTS. In this section, 32 art galleries from Japan and overseas, all of which have been established within the past five years, will be showcasing works of contemporary art.

PROJECTS is an experimental platform for emerging art galleries. In addition, it is our goal to establish the purchasing art as a means to encourage the emergence of new talent and the support of culture.

Highlights

• SCAI THE BATHHOUSE will be presenting new works from the Japanese artist, Miwa Ogasawara, who is based in Hamburg, Germany. She has achieved acclaim mainly in Europe with her works being owned by such important museums and collectors as Centre Pompidou in Paris, and the Burger Collection in Switzerland.

• Mitochu Koeki will mainly be exhibiting the works by represented postwar ceramicists, Lucie Rie and Hans Coper. Their works will be laid out in such a way as to resemble a traditional tea set.

• Kashima Arts will be presenting only one artwork that is a pair of hanging scrolls made by a master. The name of the master will be revealed on commencement of the fair.

• SUMISHO will be exhibiting pieces of Japanese ukiyoe by Hokusai Katsushika with a theme ‘celebrating the 250th anniversary of Hokusai’s birth.’ The gallery is scheduled to showcase The Boy’s Festival on the fifth of May, Sparrows and Pine Tree, Tsihi no hinagata, and Mt. Fuji.

• GALERIE TAIMEI will be presenting a solo show of Hiroki Kakinuma, a graduate student at Musashino Art University, who is popular mainly among contemporary art collectors in Asia. Approximately ten of his works including some smaller ones may be exhibited.

• Ginza Yanagi Gallery will be featuring a solo show by Hiroshi Okano, presenting his pastel drawings on which he has recently concentrated. This medium makes it possible to remain the freshness of colors on his works and to show viewers his different world from his other artworks.

• Ginza Kuroda touen will be showcasing new works by Kenji Hara. A sense of dynamism, sensitivity, and elegance in his artworks conveys his focal interest in Kisedo, Shino, and Oribe, styles that represent the flowering of Japanese ceramics.
