The Art Assembly is an affiliation of major international art fairs with a particular focus on the Asia Pacific region comprising Taipei Dangdai, India Art Fair, Sydney Contemporary, PHOTOFAIRS Shanghai, ART SG and the forthcoming Tokyo Gendai. It represents a joint initiative between three of the world’s leading art fair organisers headed by Sandy Angus, Tim Etchells and Magnus Renfrew.
The Assembly’s member fairs provide an important meeting place for the local and international art worlds and act as regional focal points for creative and commercial exchange. Informed by a deep-rooted understanding of the local market, each event is tailored to its unique orientation.
The Art Assembly aims to drive innovation, deepen engagement with contemporary art and encourage cross-cultural conversations. It achieves this by strengthening collaboration and promoting knowledge and resource sharing across the group. The Assembly pulls together decades’ worth of experience, expertise, and an extensive global network of contacts and assets, to the benefit of its member fairs, galleries and audiences
Tokyo Gendai, a new international art fair, will take place at the Pacifico Yokohama from 7-9 July 2023 (VIP Preview on 6 July) featuring around 80 leading galleries from Japan, the broader Asia Pacific region and around the globe. Tokyo Gendai is an exciting new platform for commercial, artistic and intellectual exchange, and a nexus of cross-cultural discovery.
As one of the world’s cultural capitals, Tokyo boasts a dynamic and rich art scene which provides a strong draw for international visitors. Tokyo Gendai brings together the international art world and creates a cultural moment on the Japanese art calendar.
