Highlights from Art Fair Tokyo 2018


Highlights from Art Fair Tokyo 2018

Art Fair Tokyo returns for their 13th edition this year, this time with a slight rebranding with a new logo that reflects their 'Art is Life' theme. This year also sees one of their biggest offerings with 164 galleries showcasing their works. Hinging on their unique model of showcasing antiques and crafts alongside art, Art Fair Tokyo remains one of the biggest art fairs in Japan and a reflection of Japan's flourishing art scene!
