What You Can Experience at Tokyo Biennale 2023

The Tokyo Biennale is an art festival where visitors can experience a diverse program of events at venues scattered throughout Tokyo. The programs take a variety of forms, and all offer experiences that are unique to each location. At Tokyo Biennale 2023, visitors can experience a variety of programs including exhibitions, live performances, talks, workshops, tours, and radio.

Many Programs Can Be Enjoyed Free of Charge!!!

Many programs are free of charge. This is in addition to the fact that many of the works and projects are developed in public spaces, and we believe that the more diverse group of people who participate in the festival, the broader and more connected the festival will be. Please feel free to visit the art projects of Tokyo Biennale 2023, which are hidden in the streets of Tokyo and in your usual daily life. It is also possible to repeat the free programs that you like or are interested in. Through these experiences, we hope you will feel the Linkage that is the theme of our art festival.
