This year, over 50 gal­leries spe­cial­iz­ing in con­tem­po­rary art are intro­duc­ing works by both young and estab­lished artists to the pub­lic. We are pleased to announce that rep­utable gal­leries from Tai­wan, Korea and China diver­sify the line-up. We look for­ward to the debut of Kanazawa, Gifu and Hokkaido gal­leries along­side those from the Kan­sai, Nagoya and Tokyo areas.
