Roppongi Art Night


"Ikuko Taniguchi"


Roppongi Art Night was held from sunset of March 28th to sunrise of 29th.

Some art pieces were exhibited in Roppongi Hills, Tokyo Midtown, Ropponngi shopping street and we could see movies and the observatory of Mori Tower could be used all night.

I have never seen such an experimental event in Tokyo.

I heard that there was this kind of event in Paris....

The Tokyo Metropolitan government held the event. It also held Tokyo Marathon on March 22nd. Recently the government tend to plan cool event and I think which is so nice and fantastic. The government should be experimental definitely.

One of the things that surprised me the most was the number of people who came there despite it was held late in the night. I guess people want encouragement and power of art that can break kind of predetermined harmony because our economic prospects are extremely gloomy.

I wish this kind of event spread more and accepted by a lot of people!

Personally I was interested in Ikuko Taniguchi who exhibit herself in Artcube.

She is so mysterious...
