Launched in 2009, Roppongi Art Night is a one-night, all-night, art extravaganza that celebrates the
enjoyment of art in everyday living, and serves as a trailblazing model for local initiatives in the Japanese
Artistic Director for Roppongi Art Night 2015 will be artist Katsuhiko Hibino, who also held the post in 2013
and 2014. For 2015 Hibino has assembled a more varied and wide-ranging program than ever celebrating the strengths of Tokyo, the attractions of Roppongi, and the diversity of art. In a new development for RAN, Hibino will be joined by Seiichi Saito, director of Rhizomatiks Co., Ltd., in the role of Media Art Director.
Together they will explore new possibilities in technology and media art, essential considerations for Tokyo today and cities of the future, with the aim of devising a new format for Roppongi Art Night.
