Roppongi Crossing 2022 (Title TBD)

2022.12.1 [Thu] - 2023.3.26 [Sun]

The Roppongi Crossing series of triennial exhibitions launched in 2004 by the Mori Art Museum aims to provide a snapshot of the Japanese art scene at a particular point in time. A curator from the Mori Art Museum works with guest curators to plan the exhibition, the resulting intersection of multiple viewpoints leading to the selection of between twenty and forty artists from Japan. Intended to serve as a creative nexus, the series is distinguished by the sheer breadth of its lineup, from established artists with high-profile international careers, to promising newcomers, and by its showcasing of not only contemporary art, but the work of creatives in fields as diverse as architecture, fashion and design.
The ongoing and prolonged COVID-19 emergency has changed our lives dramatically, throwing some previously less visible aspects of Japanese society into stark relief. Contemporary art expression too has been forced to change in some regards, and is beginning to respond dynamically to these social conditions. It is in this context that the first post-pandemic Roppongi Crossing 2022 will undertake a wide-ranging re-examining of Japanese contemporary art, and the very nature of creating.
