TOKYO ART BOOK FAIR 2022

We are pleased to announce that we will be hosting the 12th TOKYO ART BOOK FAIR (below, TABF) at the Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo from Thursday, October 27 to Sunday, October 30, 2022 over a span of four days. This year’s fair features a lineup of approximately 200 different exhibitors – a collective of publishers, galleries, and artists each involved in creating their own unique art books and publications. At the fair, guests and exhibitors can connect in person and engage in discourse about the allure and charm of each of their creations. This year’s TABF will also be home to the sixth rendition of the Guest Country project – an endeavor that draws attention to the culture of publishing within a certain region or country. This year’s “Guest Country” will be France, and at the TABF we will be taking a multifaceted dive into the country’s rich tradition of art publishing through exhibits and other projects. Other notable undertakings include a lineup of special exhibitions by Bottega Veneta and Shiseido, together with a program shining light on risograph works – an artform quickly gathering attention in the art book scene as of late. Adding to this lineup is our rich repertoire of other events – workshops and talk events with special guests, book signings by artists and creators, and much more. Through this collection of art-book-focused endeavors, it’s our hope at the TABF to provide guests with a glance into the “now” of the continuously-evolving world of art books.
