Newly launched under the theme of “contemporary art and collaboration,” Art Collaboration Kyoto (ACK) is one of the largest art fairs in Japan dedicated to contemporary art. Representing over 50 galleries from Kyoto, Japan, Asia, Europe, and both North and South America, collaborations are anticipated between local Japanese and international galleries, the public and private sectors, and art related industries and other fields. The Kyoto International Conference Center venue will be organized into two sections—Gallery Collaborations and Kyoto Meetings—allowing participating galleries to exhibit and sell works and to also have access to spaces for special events. Moreover, many additional programs will be held in tandem with the ACK fair across Kyoto prefecture.
