What is “ Osaka Art & Design ” ?

Osaka Art & Design is a tour-around event where you can visit venues around the city of Osaka to enjoy encountering art and design that you are unfamiliar with.
It is an encounter with works of art that stimulate the imagination and inspire the senses and with design products that seize your mind with functional beauty and primitiveness.
A new movement is beginning in this city, where people are connected through vibrant communication.

2024 Theme.


Individuals with resilient and powerful characters in Osaka, a city full of dynamic vitality and energy, inspire each other and create unexpected chemical reactions (synergies): Direct and penetrating thoughts, liberation from oppression, and solidarity among those who do not shy away from deviation.
The sympathy, or resonance, that transcends the attributes and domains of each individual will create a great wave that will spread across the world as never before.
