ART FEAR TOKYOは、学術的な側面や市場性を一度脇に置いて、
(文章 : 山口真人)
ART FEAR TOKYO is an event that aims to put academic aspects and marketability aside once and for all, and to enjoy expressive activities freely.The name is inspired by Art Fair, which already shows its humorous nature.It is not clear at this time what specific organizations or movements this event will belong to, but expect its direction to gradually become clearer as the participants enjoy their freedom of expression.
Unfortunately, Banksy and Damien Hirst were unable to participate in this exhibition due to scheduling difficulties, but the artists exhibited are very talented and have outstanding taste. FUKI COMMITTEE, which watches over the streets of Tokyo, MAKERS SPACE, which brings the world to pixels, and BURUMORI, the weakest villain who suddenly appeared last year, and TAKUMU, a young icon who is opening up the future of Harajuku fashion, are also joining the event.In addition, the organizer himself will exhibit his work, making a total of five people in the show.
The quality of the works is high, and a giant roulette with great impact is set up in the center of the exhibition hall.And please enjoy the exhibition filled with a sense of fear, pop, and chaos.
