Roppongi Art Night 2022: This Year's Theme and Main Program Artist Were Announced
Roppongi Art Night is a festival of the arts unfolding from the stage of Roppongi City The festival aims to further the possibilities of art within society by developing content such as art installations, music, performances, and talk events throughout the entire city of Roppongi, a place known for its assembly of cultural facilities (including art museums), large scale complexes, and shopping districts Held continuously since its inaugural edition in 2009 it has become established as a premier urban art festival.
For several years, we were forced to shelve real-life programming due to the spread of COVID-19 and its resulting impacts, but we are now pleased to announce that Roppongi Art Night will return in real-life with “Magical Adventure : Find Your Art of Wonder in the Town!” from Saturday, September 17 – Monday, September 19.
We welcome Takashi Murakami, one of the most internationally-renowned top names in Japanese contemporary art, as our main program artist, in addition to a group of 12 participating artists selected through his curation.
As a measure of caution against the spread of COVID-19 and to avoid overcrowding, this year’s event will not be an all-night affair. In addition to extending the duration of the event to 3 days, select exhibitions will open in advance, and there will also be opportunities for staggered viewings to alleviate crowds.
