Message from Yukako Yamashita (ACK Program Director)

In 2022, we aimed to build up the identity of ACK, by valuing the origins and the uniqueness of Kyoto, as a significant cultural city. At a time when art fairs are increasing globally, the goal of ACK is providing “time” to share with people through its high-quality program.

The curatorial theme for this year’s ACK was “Flowers of Time” in the hope that everyone would enjoy art anew, savor the experience of interacting with others, and cultivate mindfulness. Collaboration is the key element of ACK. While seeking to create sustainable activities through collaboration between government and private sectors, art and other fields with international players, we aim to contribute to the art world and its next generation.
We believe in the power of art to connect Kyoto and the world, and we will continue to create unique and meaningful experiences through ACK, in the coming year and beyond.
