The continued enthusiasm for Japan in Europe has seen a growth in audiences who are looking for a deeper dive into Japanese culture. JAE is the first major expo solely dedicated to Japanese arts and culture, and the event’s director coordinated the event with this in mind. The director regularly collaborates with embassies, educational institutions and museums to host talks and exhibitions.
He is also the director of Japanese Gallery Kensington. When looking at how to shape the expo, Mr. Wertheim considered that “there are many times where lectures and symposiums show artworks to audiences without being able to interact with the object itself. But at Japan Art Expo it is an integral part of the event. It will maximize learning opportunities through real world examples”.
Visitors will be able to engage with art through educational lectures, symposiums and handling sessions, breaking the barrier between artwork and audience. It is an exciting opportunity to engage with, learn about and collect Japanese works of art across a broad spectrum of disciplines. The variety of attendees’ areas of work and specialisms make JAE a hub for exchanging knowledge and ideas, as well as forging new connections within the industry.
Specialist Japanese art scholars from prestigious societies will be on hand to provide visitors with industry knowledge. It will benefit both seasoned collectors looking to buy items directly with peace of mind and for new collectors to feel empowered in an unbiased, knowledge driven environment.
