Design Festa Gallery
Design Festa is a freestyle International Art Event open to artists from all
over the world, both professional and non-professional, to exhibit their
creative talent. Design Festa is the biggest art event in Japan, with
approximately 43,000 visitors and 4,800 exhibitors. Design Festa started in
1994 and as of April 2003 we've successfully completed 17 events as well as
3 sub-events. The event features a wide diversity of creative work,
including painting, sculpture, design, fashion and installations, as well as
video jockeys, film, live music, and performance art.
Design Festa is held
twice a year in spring and autumn at Tokyo Big Sight, the biggest exhibition
space in Japan, and the next event, Design Festa vol.18, takes place on
November 15th and 16th.
Design Festa offers free entrance to media staff at their media information desk. Please
contact them to register on the media guest list.
What is Design Festa Gallery?
Design Festa Gallery is situated in Harajuku, Tokyo, and is open year-round,
except on the Design Festa event weekends. Instantly recognizable, the
stunning Gallery building is in itself a work of art, thanks to the
contributions of artists to the exterior of the building since the Gallery
opened in 1997. The interior features exhibition spaces of various sizes
where artists can exhibit their work and network in a unique and stimulating
creative environment. Entrance to the Gallery is free.
This building also houses the Design Festa Office on the third floor.
