About ACK

Art Collaboration Kyoto is an art fair held in Kyoto with collaboration at its core. One of the leading art fairs in Japan specializing in contemporary art, Art Collaboration Kyoto presents unique collaborations forged between Japanese and international galleries; government and private sectors; and fine arts and other cultural spheres in Kyoto. Hosted in the Kyoto International Conference Center, the fair consists of two sections: “Gallery Collaborations”and “Kyoto Meetings” where galleries display and sell their works. Moreover in support of the fair’s commitment to bettering the future of the art world through educational programming, the fair will also host self-organized programs "ACK Curates" across the main venue such as "Public Program" exhibition, "ACK Talks", and the "Kids’ Program" for families and youth. “Special Programs” will also be hosted in collaboration with partner companies.
