Late March in Tokyo means the beautiful cherry blossom season, but it is also the time of Art Fair Tokyo, coming up this year for its 10th anniversary. The fair will gather a total of around 140 exhibitors from 30 cities worldwide, with 26 galleries participating for the first time. Gathering a wide range of international, but more importantly Japanese artists, Art Fair Tokyo 2015 will offer a great opportunity to purchase new, exciting art, as well as antiques and modern works. For this purpose, the fair will feature the North Wing, focusing on crafts, antiques, nihonga and yoga, while the South Wing will showcase contemporary art. The special programs of the Art Fair Tokyo 2015 include exhibitions that will re-examine Japanese contemporary art from the perspectives of the Rimpa school of painting and the Venice Biennale, and will also explore the art of media and technology in the Marunouchi area, the commercial district of Tokyo.
