Roppongi Art Night 2021
Sep 23 - Sep 26Free
This year’s main program artist is Takashi Murakami, one of the top names in Japanese contemporary art. Murakami has curated a selection of artists who, together with him, will take on Doraemon.
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.
This edition of Roppongi Art Night 2021 picks up from last year’s cancelled Roppongi Art Night 2020 and the programs of Roppongi Art Night Spin-off Project, incorporating digital programming to further elevate the event.
Roppongi Art Night 2021 is planned as a real and digital hybrid event. The duration of the core-event has been extended to take place from September 23 (Thu/holiday) – 26 (Sun), as a measure to reduce the impact of crowds and the spread of COVID-19, while still allowing viewers to enjoy the works of art and explore the city of Roppongi.
