New Meetup: +PLUS Tokyo Contemporary Art Fair

From: Arthur H
Sent on: Sunday, November 7, 2010 9:47 PM
Announcing a new Meetup for Tokyo Museum Meetup Group!

What: +PLUS Tokyo Contemporary Art Fair

When: Sunday, November 21,[masked]:00 PM

Where: Tokyo Bijitsu Club
[masked] Shinbashi

There are many contemporary art galleries throughout Tokyo. For this Meetup, we will attend one of several contemporary art fairs held in Tokyo every year.

+PLUS Tokyo Contemporary Art Fair at the Tokyo Bijutsu Club in Shimbashi will feature 40 galleries primarily from Tokyo and Japan. I attended this art fair last year and discovered a number of the galleries that I have introduced to the Museum Meetup for that experience.

This is a great way to get an introduction to the contemporary art scene and figure out which galleries exhibit works that you are interested in. Each gallery occupies a booth and usually features the work of one artist or several artists. There are catalogues of the featured artists as well as other artists in the gallery. Staff from each gallery are there to answer any questions and talk about the artists. Here is a link to the galleries that will be exhibiting at +PLUS:

Unlike previous gallery hopping Meetups, +PLUS has a 1000 yen admission fee. It's not free, but think of all the money you will save on train and subway fare trying to see all 40 galleries at their locations!

I am opening this Meetup to 20 people since it is in one location and the space is large enough to accommodate a larger group. We will meet at the Onarimon station (Mita Line) and walk over to the Tokyo Bijutsu Club together. Once inside, I encourage attendees to wander around the booths as small groups and talk about the work with each other as well as the gallery staff.

Date: Sunday, November 21, 2010
Location: Outside of Onarimon Station (Mita Line), Exit A4
Time: 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Admission Fee: 1000 yen

Chat Session after the exhibitions:

Due to the size of this Meetup, there will be not a formal chat session after the art fair. However, Meetup attendees should feel free to gather in small groups and talk about what they've seen afterwards at a cafe or elsewhere.
