ARTPIL Profiles of the Arts
DESIGNART Tokyo 2018
Oct 19 – 28, 2018 / Tokyo

Yuu Minamimura, Identity

DESIGNART is a new word that redefines the things that touch us and bring emotion to our everyday lives through function and beauty. It is also the name of the movement to spread and share this amazing concept. With the concept of “Emotions” we will gather and exhibit emotional design and art contents from all over the world. Through the recent years, the boundaries between design and art have been crossing over, and works surpassing such boundaries have been creating an international movement. However, to save the traditional industries around the world, we have noticed the need to clarify the identity of these movements through design or art, and send out this information to the people who are interested in “Emotions.” Through our sustainable activities, we aim to enrich the qualities of lives, along with spreading the word DESIGNART, as a term to explain design and art on the same level, not just domestically but also internationally.

Tokyo is one of a handful of cities in the world where architecture, interior design, fashion, art, graphic design, technology, food, and more combine into a cultural mixture that attracts people from all over the world.

3. SUPPORTING YOUNG DESIGNERS AND ARTISTS

Discovering and supporting young designers and artists who are the future of Japanese culture, is at the heart of ‘Under-30’, a key initiative for the festival founders. DESIGNART Tokyo has initiated a call out to promising young designers, artists and curators from various creative genres and will provide a place for young creators to show their work by connecting them to shops, galleries, manufacturers.
