Art Osaka 2022 comes to two different art hubs!
The contemporary art fair celebrates its 20th anniversary,
held concurrently at two exceptional locations!
When: Wednesday, July 6- Monday, July 11, 2022
・Creative Center Osaka (former Namura Shipbuilding Osaka site)
The contemporary art fair Art Osaka 2022 is now in its momentous 20th year running, and will be held from Wednesday, July 6 to Monday, July 11. Art Osaka is the longest-running art fair in Japan, and is beloved as an event to see the lastest art trends from both young and center-stage artists. The event will once again be held at Osaka City Central Public Hall (a nationally-designated important cultural property), but has this year expanded into a new venue, the Creative Center Osaka (a designated heritage of industrial modernization) in Kitakagaya, an area full of art studios.
Art Osaka brings together art in both the culturally active Nakanoshima area with its newly opened Nakanoshima Museum of Art, Osaka, and the liberal, open-minded Kitakagaya area. Visit to enjoy the expanded fair as well as the chance to explore the greater Osaka. Tickets are now on sale.
