Tokyo first began to attract global attention during the 1980s when its creativity blossomed to give birth to a unique culture. What kind of image does Tokyo present as a cultural center for us? The “TOKYO” exhibition will present the creativity of contemporary Tokyo, which inherits the hot, magma-like vitality of 1980s Tokyo to burst through the glacier.

Including 5 writers as Japan premiere and some important musicians on talking about the sensibility of post-Internet, such as James Ferraro and Jenna Sutela, it’s the very unique curation because it’s little bit different from the traditional art exhibition.
