The Roppongi Art Night Executive Committee will be hosting Roppongi Art Night 2017 for 2 days on September 30 (Sat) and October 1 (Sun), 2017. Launched in 2009, Roppongi Art Night will be celebrating its 8th* edition.
This year’s theme is “Mirai no Matsuri” (festival of the future)． In recent years, music festivals and art festivals are all considered matsuri or festivals. What all of these have in common is that people gather to share an experience and pass on the culture to future generations with this as one form of communication platform. Please look forward to Roppongi Art Night 2017 which will be featuring a wide range of works of art and bringing together people from all walks of life for a special night. This year, we are excited to welcome photographer and filmmaker Mika Ninagawa as the main program artist, showcasing her beautiful and seductive works. Visitors are sure to be entranced by her unique, colorful visions of art. Also, this year Roppongi Art Night will be launching the “Southeast Asia Project” in which artists from Southeast Asia as well as Japanese artists will work together with the Roppongi community and its people to create and present art. They will create art works based on the theme “Mirai no Matsuri” (festival of the future) and present their works in Roppongi.
*The 2011 event was cancelled due to the Great East Japan Earthquake.
