About ACK

Art Collaboration Kyoto (ACK) is an art fair held in Kyoto under the theme of “contemporary art and collaboration.” It is one of the largest art fairs in Japan specializing in contemporary art, and is unique in the collaborations it forges between Japanese and international galleries, government and private sectors, and the fine arts and other fields.
The main venue, Kyoto International Conference Center, will consist of two sections, “Gallery Collaborations” and “Kyoto Meetings,” where works will be exhibited and sold.
In addition, special exhibitions planned by newly appointed Program Director Yukako Yamashita will be held in Kyoto City, and a number of satellite programs are scheduled to coincide with the holding of ACK.
