In partnership with Tokyo Art Book Fair 2017, DECK will present Steidl Book Award Asia exhibition featuring the works of 8 award recipients, and a public panel discussion on making books with Steidl Publishing.
Supplementary to book launch, DECK will feature recent handmade and self-published photobooks made in Indonesia and Thailand.
Through a wide variety of book-signings, lectures, and other events, this year’s Fair works to portray the allure of the art book by way of a multifaceted approach. The special project “Guest Country,” dedicated to exploring the book-publishing culture of a certain region, serves as one such endeavor; this year, the project focuses attention on four Asian countries making waves in the art book scene. The Fair also brings exhibitions and events in connection with the “Steidl Book Award Asia,” first established last year in Asia by the German publisher Steidl, along with “Steidl Book Award Japan,” its Japanese counterpart; an exhibition bringing together books bound by Tadanori Yokoo; a talk show commemorating 80th anniversary of Shiseido’s culture magazine HANATSUBAKI; and much more.
This year’s Fair is also replete with special exhibitions and events brought to us by a variety of galleries, stores, workshops, and other participating establishments – including six galleries located within the TERRADA ART COMPLEX: the Kodama Gallery | Tennoz, YAMAMOTO GENDAI, KOSAKU KANECHIKA, SCAI PARK, URANO, and the Yuka Tsuruno Gallery. Other exhibitions and events unfold within NEIGHBOURS, a nearby facility in Tennozu – featuring the photography-centered exhibition space IMA gallery, the lifestyle option store SLOW HOUSE, the Architecture Model Workshop, an atelier specializing in architectural models, and much more. Concessions and refreshments will also be on sale at the banks of the nearby canal, while we will be providing a lounge space for our visitors to relax at. We invite fair-comers to come see for themselves this four-day long celebration of art and culture, brought to life throughout the entirety of Tennozu Isle, the new hub of Tokyo’s art scene.
