OUTLINE at 2021


This year's "UNKNOWN ASIA" aims to be a hybrid art fair that combines a real venue with an online presence.
In order to keep the place of new value creation with artists that we have cherished, we will create a place for creative communication that is not bound by country or region by creating an environment that is easy to access and safe for all participants.
UNKNOWN ASIA is a gathering of cutting-edge artists from Japan and other Asian countries.
We hope you will enjoy meeting and communicating with the artists while feeling their passion.

    • It has been almost two months since the art fair "Kiyo Bank presents UNKNOWN ASIA 2021" and "Kiyo Bank presents UNKNOWN ASIA 2021 ONLINE" were held in October. We had a total of over 7,000 visitors at the actual venue held at Grand Front Osaka, and recorded about 12,000 unique users browsing ONLINE. Once again, thank you very much!

      This year, we'll be doing it again: we'll be publishing reviews of all the artists who participated in UNKNOWN ASIA. We'll have reviews of all the artists who exhibited at UNKNOWN ASIA, both in person and online, and hybrids. Comments from the judges, reviewers and sponsors are also included. There is also advice and encouragement for the future, and it also functions as an archive. This year, Takeshi Ishikawa (Skeleton Crew Studio) and Ryo Takahashi (digmeout/DMOARTS), who have been active as members of the UNKNOWN ASIA Executive Committee since the first edition, are in charge. We hope you enjoy reading this article when you have time!
