Art Fair Tokyo 2012 expands its venue, taking up all of the Tokyo International Forum Exhibition Hall

TOKYO.- For the seventh edition in this year, the fair will have an expanded venue, taking up the whole area of the Tokyo International Forum Exhibition Hall. As a result, the special section for young contemporary art galleries, “PROJECTS,” which was located in the Lobby Gallery until last year, will be set up within the Exhibition Hall, and several new programs will be conducted. Launched in 2011 as an experimental exhibition for contemporary art, Artistic Practices will be expanded in 2012 to introduce an even wider range of creative works mainly focusing on art to present high-quality works of Japanese art and projects. Its theme will be “artistic practices exist in all times and all genres”. Curated by Yuji YAMASHITA (Professor, Meiji Gakuin University), “Shuffle” took place at the Shirokane Art Complex as a collaborative program of ART FAIR TOKYO 2011.
