Art Collaboration Kyoto

Launched in 2021, Art Collaboration Kyoto (ACK) is an art fair held annually in Kyoto under the theme of “contemporary art and collaboration.” With about 50 galleries partipating, it’s a more boutique event than Art Fair Tokyo and Tokyo International Art Fair, both of which bring in over 100 exhibitors. The fair’s smaller size allows for an unusual layout at its venue, the Kyoto International Conference Center Event Hall, with booths in seemingly random orientations and relations to one another. This provides a sense of discovery to fairgoers and create plaza-like spaces and back alleys, where visitors and exhibitors can take a break from the booths. Art Collaboration Kyoto aims to built bridges between Japanese and international galleries, government and private sectors, and the fine arts and other fields. In addition to the fair itself, special exhibitions planned by newly appointed Program Director Yukako Yamashita are held in the city, and a number of satellite programs are scheduled to coincide with the holding of ACK.
