Art Fair Tokyo 2008

Masashi, Yuka and I went to Art Fair Tokyo 2008 last Friday evening. I had wanted to check out contemporary art here, so it was good luck that this was happening during my visit. Compared to the European and American fairs, Tokyo is very small, local and conservative. Half of the work was from galleries that specialize in a sort of faux traditional Japanese style. There were some cool galleries there, and some interesting work, I would be interested to see how it develops over the next couple of years. In one of the book publisher's stalls we found a Japan-only postcard book of work from our home town gallery the Albright-Knox. Masashi (an 8 year B-lo resident) bought one.
