The general directors are Masato Nakamura (artist) and Kazuko Koike (Creative Director).
The biennial festival is unique its programs, including art projects promoted by writers and creators from various industries that agree with the purpose of the Tokyo Biennale, the “Social Dive Studies” program conducted by open call with the aim of exploring the communities, and social projects that continuously engage with the communities through art, all of which are art projects that aim to reconsider the city and its sites and change the status quo through the common link of art. There are also many highlighted works such as Noboru Tsubaki’s “TOKYO BUDDHA” and exhibitions by Naohiro Ukawa, or many AR works.
