All of 3331 Arts Chiyoda an Art Fair! 100 collector prize!
The 3331 Art Fair draws out a variety of current visions for building the art scene. In turn, this moves us towards new discoveries and relationships surrounding contemporary art. This is based on the challenge of framing an alternative art fair that questions the elements of "art" and "market". Artists themselves play the role of drawing out their "expressive activities" and "artworks". The artistic value underlying both of these is then valued by society and the economy with the aim of expanding our art market.
The 3331 Art Fair opening in March of 2018, is full of expectations, set to include the main gallery, gymnasium, classroom areas, rooftop and the entire 3331 Arts Chiyoda complex as one art fair.
