Here and there in Kiyosumi-shirakawa–colorful MOT events of all kinds!
Over 20 years have passed since Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo (MOT) first opened. In that time, the Kiyosumi-shirakawa area has rapidly changed, and MOT has grown with its changes. Currently, the area is drawing interest with its blend of history dating from the Edo period (1603-1868), nostalgic old townscapes, and new cultural spaces abuzz with creativity. “MOT Satellite” is a project of uncovering Kiyosumi-shirakawa’s true charm. The museum, taking advantage of its temporary closure, is going outside to engage with people, places, and history together with artists and local residents and shops. During the project period, artwork exhibits, workshop, and other events will be held in the district.
