Tokyo Is Hosting An Art Week This November


Art Week Tokyo unveiled the highlights of their exhibition and it’s exciting

Art Week Tokyo is the premiere citywide initiative for contemporary art in Tokyo and showcases some of the most unique and creative artworks of our time. This year Art Week Tokyo will take place from 3 to 6 November 2022 and since good art just cannot be contained, the highlights of this exhibition have been unveiled.

This year’s lineup is fantastic and it is organized in collaboration with Art Basel, a non-profit privately owned international art fair and the world’s leading global platform connecting collectors, galleries and artists. This guarantees a visual experience unlike anything you’ve ever seen before.

Art WeekOn display at Art Week Tokyo will be the retrospective exhibitions of Lee Ufan and Shinro Ohtake. The former led the Mono-Ha phenomenon in Japan in the 1960s and the latter has been creating art blending time memory and global consumer culture since the 1970s. For lovers of history, these artworks are the ones to look out for.

The next highlight of Art Week Tokyo will be the showcase of contemporary Japanese artists like Rinko Kawauchi, Hiroshi Sugimoto, Ryoji Ikeda, Gozo Yoshimasu, and more. These pieces of art showcase the various forms of art look like in Japan today and offer a glimpse of art from the past that influenced the present.

There will also be International artists present such as Daan van Golden, Julian Opie, and Christiane Lohr, along with others who will bring a healthy dose of art from around the world to the traditional and tranquil backdrop of beautiful Japan.Japan Art Week 2022

The highlight we are most excited for at Art Week Tokyo is definitely the brand-new commission of AWT Bar along with the AWT Information Center / VIP Lounge which was designed by emerging architect Motosuke Mandai. The lounge will offer striking artist-designed cocktails, and what better way to enjoy art with a few delectable drinks.

Art Director, Atsuki Kikuchi will be leading the creative element of Art Week Tokyo. He is a graphic designer and author of the book “Play”. It will be interesting to see the direction he will take the exhibition in this year.

The cherry on top of this artistic cake would be the multistrand lineup of Japanese and English talks which were announced for this exciting exhibition. These talks are deisgned to walk vistors through the entire set up of the exhibition and what it stands for.Art Week
