"Roppongi Art Night 2023: Urban Life Encyclopedia" An Art Extravaganza to Illuminate Roppongi.
The Roppongi Art Night Executive Committee will hold “Roppongi Art Night 2023”, an art festival staged throughout the city of Roppongi, for two days from Saturday, May 27 to Sunday, May 28, 2023. “Roppongi Art Night”, now in its 12th year* since its inception in 2009, has become a leading art festival in Tokyo, aiming to create a pioneering model for urban development in the metropolis.
We welcome as this year’s featured artists Takashi Kuribayashi + Cinema Caravan and Tomoko
Konoike, both of whom are contemporary artists active in Japan and abroad. Under the theme of “Urban Life Encyclopedia”, the works on display throughout Roppongi will look to the great movements and cycles of the natural world to imagine the lives that exist within the city, sparking new and diverse connections that visitors may not have previously been aware of. The event will present contemporary art, design, video, performance, and online content from the featured artists along with other emerging artists.
During “Roppongi Art Night 2023”, art museums and other cultural facilities, large complexes, and shopping districts will collaborate to offer special programs and extended opening hours for the exhibitions. Roppongi is a place where arts from Japan and international points assemble together, and where visitors can enjoy gourmet food, shopping, and movies. We hope you will enjoy the colorful city of Roppongi, which is full of surprises, excitement, and encounters.
*The 2011 event was cancelled due to the Great East Japan Earthquake, and the 2020 and 2021 events were cancelled due to the COVID 19 pandemic.
