“Roppongi Art Night 2021” Announced for This Fall!
It’s official, “Roppongi Art Night 2021” is to be held this fall, from Thursday, September 23 to Sunday, September 26. 2021.
As a real and digital hybrid event, “Roppongi Art Night 2021” is picking up from last year’s canceled “Roppongi Art Night 2020” and the programs of “Roppongi Art Night Spin off Project” with the theme “Magical Adventure: Find Your Art of Wonder in the Town!”
Our main artist will be Takashi Murakami, one of the superstars in Japanese contemporary art. For this edition’s motif, Murakami has chosen “Doraemon.” In recent years, the artist has produced a series of works involving the character, with the late Fujiko F. Fujio, the creator of Doraemon. In addition, Murakami has selected a group of artists who will take on the same motif in creating their artworks.
In addition, the event will gather a wide variety of contemporary artworks such as installation, video, and performance works throughout the city, as well as other various video works, performances, and talk programs to be enjoyed digitally through “Roppongi Art Night Digital (including RAN TV).”
Under the spell of art, the city of Roppongi will transform into a magical world filled with mystery. We hope you enjoy this great magical adventure with “Doraemon.”
