Welcoming Deutsche Bank Group as its Main Sponsor for a second consecutive year, ART FAIR TOKYO 2012 will be held over three days this year during the spring cherry blossom season. For its seventh edition, the fair will feature an expanded venue, taking up the whole of the Tokyo International Forum Exhibition Hall. The more than 160 participating galleries and cooperating partners will feature a wide range of genres and periods from antiques, crafts, nihionga, and modern art to the latest contemporary art. ART FAIR TOKYO 2012 will include several new highlights: a booth with high-quality works retracing Japanese art history from antiques to contemporary art, a section offering opportunities to discover the latest, internationally acclaimed art from the Asia-Pacific region, and many original programs and new related-events organized in collaboration with other creative industries, such as food and fashion. ART FAIR TOKYO will provide a unique experience in discovering the joys of “purchasing art.”
