Must-See Art Guide: Tokyo
This week's guide includes Karl Lagerfeld, Yoko Ono, Hishida Shunso, and more.
Stories have been told about it, people from all over visit it, and some even get lost in it, and it will soon be the host of the next Summer Olympics and Paralympic Games in 2020—and yes, we’re talking about Tokyo this week. Adding another string to the bow starting today, Art Fair Tokyo, in its 11th edition, offers a wide range of works, from antiques and crafts to modern and contemporary art with its 157 exhibiting galleries. Although it’s the city’s main and largest art event this week, it doesn’t stop there. Make sure to take the chance to explore the countless art galleries and museums, from Whitestone Gallery and Yumiko Chiba Associates to The National Museum of Modern Art of Tokyo—the choice is yours.
