For the Tokyo 2020 Games, 19 artists created works based on the theme of the Olympic or Paralympic Games and use them as posters to build momentum in the period leading up to the Games. The exhibition of Tokyo 2020 art posters will be held at Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum from July 20th to September 5th, 2021.

Since the early 20th century, posters have been created by Organising Committees of the Olympic Games to promote and advertise this major sporting and cultural event. Olympic posters also play the role of showcasing the special features of each Games to the world.

Recently, official posters have been created by internationally-renowned artists and designers aimed at leaving cultural and artistic legacies for the individual Olympic and Paralympic Games. These posters include works that are now regarded as iconic.
