The annual contemporary art event ART FAIR ASIA FUKUOKA will be held for the 5th time during September 5th-9th, 2019. There will be leading galleries from within the contemporary art scene from inside and out of Japan participating.
As a new addition, in celebration of our fifth year, Art Fair Asia will also be hosted in the Fukuoka Mitsukoshi Department Store, located in Tenjin, Fukuoka's largest commercial district. Mixing this with the Hotel Fair in Hotel Okura Fukuoka will allow this to become a comprehensive fair in the future.
Thanks to the close collaboration between the galleries and stakeholders, the fair has received high praise in previous years, and we hope it will continue to do so. The AFAF AWARDS acts as a way of discovering and introducing promising young artists and has been met with much enthusiasm from both art fans and participating galleries. AFAF hopes to be a space where people can come in close contact with art and gain experiences to be incorporated in their daily lives. We hope Fukuoka will take center stage and be recognized as a city of culture and art, not just in Asia, but in the world.
