Fukuoka City has launched the “Fukuoka Art Next (FaN)” project for 2022, and is implementing various programs to become a “city that grows with art”, including the opening of “Artist Cafe Fukuoka” to support artists’ exchange and growth, the establishment of the Fukuoka Art Award, and the holding of ART FAIR ASIA FUKUOKA and citywide art exhibitions (FaN Week) in collaboration with the private sector. The Japan Pavilion will be located in the Japan Pavilion, which will be open to the public.
 The Japan Pavilion will host an exhibition curated by Hiroki Yamamoto, a critic and cultural researcher, at two venues in Gwangju.

 Under the concept of “We (still) have things to remember,” the exhibition aims to listen to the myriad voices and silences historically embedded in Gwangju while at the same time opening a circuit to connect to the ongoing global events. Akiko Utsumi and Mitsue Yamauchi, two contemporary artists based in Fukuoka City who are active in Japan and abroad, will present new works for this exhibition.

Fukuoka City will use this as an opportunity to actively promote exchanges with the world through art.
