Special Book Exhibit

In the special corner “Special Book Exhibit” of the Art Library (main building 3rd floor), we have introduced materials from the collection taking themes from topics and news of the time since 2008.

52th: Roppongi Art (May 10, 2023 - )

In this book exhibit, we will focus on art in the Roppongi area, where the National Art Center, Tokyo is located. 

The Roppongi area is home to a wide variety of art and design activities. The "Roppongi Art Night," which creates an extraordinary experience by scattering artworks around the town mainly at night, the "Roppongi Crossing," a contemporary art exhibition held every three years at the Mori Art Museum, and the "TOKYO MIDTOWN AWARD," a design and art competition held in Tokyo Midtown, are just a few examples of the various activities taking place in the Roppongi area. The exhibit will feature books and exhibition catalogues of these projects.

In the exhibit, we introduce materials related to these projects and exhibition catalogs, as well as architectural materials related to the "Roppongi Art Triangle" (The National Art Center, Tokyo, Mori Art Museum, and Suntory Museum of Art), and catalogs for the anniversary exhibitions of the museums. Click the exhibit title above to see an overview of the materials.
