ART OSAKA 2021 will hold its 19th installment from July 18th and 20th (with a preview on Sunday, July 18th 12:00-16:00) at Osaka City Central Public Hall (a nationally designated important cultural property).
ART OSAKA is the longest-running art fair in Japan, modeling itself as an hotel art fair showcasing the best in contemporary art. This year marks a fresh step forward and a collaborative merger with a representative model of modern architecture in Osaka.
Located in the city’s Nakanoshima area, the venue for this year’s exhibition, Osaka City Central Public Hall, has been known to citizens as a place of arts, culture and social activity since its completion in 1918. Nakanoshima is home to cultural sights such as the National Museum of Art, Osaka Prefectural Nakanoshima Library, Festival Hall, and more, and remains an area of great anticipation with the scheduled completion of the new Nakanoshima Museum of Art, Osaka in 2022. In addition, the Nakanoshima area’s wonderful scenery offers a break from the bustle of the city, with green surrounds and the Dojimagawa and Tosaborigawa rivers flowing on the north and south sides respectively.
The unveiling of ART OSAKA 2021 in this wonderful area of arts and culture will bring together a group of 46 contemporary art galleries. Guests are invited to view the selection of paintings, sculpture, fine-art photography, film, prints, and spatial installations chosen by the unique tastes of each gallerist; if anything captures our visitors’ eyes, they will be able to purchase works directly at the venue. We hope that this event offers the opportunity for visitors to encounter something special. Osaka City Central Public Hall continues to retain the spirit of arts and culture; we hope you will have the chance to enjoy the venue replete with the latest in contemporary art.
In order to maintain fixed numbers of visitors inside the building, entry will be by prior reservation only. Careful attention will be paid to guidelines concerning COVID-19 infection control measures so that the venue will remain safe and guests can enjoy the exhibition at ease. We ask for your understanding and cooperation regarding this matter.
