Art Week Tokyo is an annual showcase of the creativity and diversity of contemporary art in Tokyo. Seeking to stimulate the growth of Tokyo’s art ecosystem, the event connects over 50 of the city’s leading museums, galleries, and art spaces through four days of coordinated programming. The free AWT Bus service links all venues and makes it easier than ever to explore one of the world’s most dynamic art scenes along with all the culture that Tokyo has to offer. 

The 2023 edition of Art Week Tokyo marks the debut of AWT Focus, a curated sales platform with a historical scope, held at the Okura Museum of Art on the grounds of hotel partner the Okura Tokyo. Art Week Tokyo’s community platforms include the AWT Bar, which provides visitors a convivial gathering place in a special environment designed by an emerging architect, and AWT Talks, encompassing a symposium, a curators’ roundtable, and an online talks series. Art Week Tokyo’s VIP program offers art patrons unprecedented access to the best of Tokyo’s art scene through exclusive tours, private views, collection visits, and other events.  

Art Week Tokyo is organized by Japan Contemporary Art Platform in collaboration with Art Basel, with support from Japan’s Agency for Cultural Affairs. Art Week Tokyo’s infrastructural development initiative, the Art Week Tokyo Mobile Project, is co-organized by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government and the Art Week Tokyo Mobile Project Organizing Committee. Art Week Tokyo held a soft-launch edition November 4–7, 2021, under pandemic conditions, and held its first full-scaled edition November 3–6, 2022, shortly after the reopening of Japan’s borders to tourist travel. The 2022 edition featured 51 participating institutions, galleries, and art spaces, and attracted more than 32,000 visitors.
