TOKYO’S LARGEST ART DESIGN FESTIVAL SHOWCASES ISRAELI TALENT E-mail

An exhibition focussing on Israeli art was part of the DesignArtTokyo 2019 festival, which was recently held in Japan.

The 10-day festival ran from 19-27 October and centred around the concept of “Emotions” and displays interiors, art, fashion and food from throughout the world in exhibitions across Tokyo.

The event attracts roughly 200,000 visitors annually, being one of the largest art design festivals in the country. The festival also attracts many participating countries that showcase their own art, fashion, and food.

This year, 20 Israeli artists and designers were chosen to showcase their works under the title Garden of Eden. Israel was also granted the honour of being an official partner.

These artists were also guest exhibitors at the Jerusalem Design Week festival that took place earlier this year.

The launching of the Israeli exhibition was attended by Jerusalem Affairs and Heritage Minister Zeev Elkin, and Israel’s Ambassador to Japan Yaffa Ben-Ari, the latter of whom said she was “thrilled to share with the Japanese people Israel’s creativity and innovative spirit.”
