  • Holding declaration
  • The third emergency declaration period has been extended, and no prejudice is allowed. Under such circumstances, why do we declare that the "Tokyo Biennale 2020/2021" will be held? This is because the concept of the "Tokyo Biennale" is not an event for art, but a challenge to "share new experiences" at the city level. The theme of "To the unseen scenery" that we have set up this time is derived from that, and the source is the idea of "from" I "to" us "" that was raised at the time of launch.

    <The kind of "anxiety" that everyone feels somewhere in Tokyo or in society as a whole cannot be wiped out by the thoughts and existence of "individuals." It is only when the individual consciousness of "I" spreads to the bird's-eye view of "us" that we can reach the core of the problem and find a solution. >

    This is the result of the launch of the "Tokyo Biennale City Committee" (2018), but it also includes the "anxiety" associated with the current situation. The activities concept of the Tokyo Biennale, "History and Future," "Education," "Happiness," and "Recovery Power," are becoming more important nowadays, and for that purpose, "a frame for expanding creative activities." I'm sure you're looking for it right now. The "Tokyo Biennale" is a "place to experiment with new frames and mechanisms." Of course, the new frame also includes infectious disease control. Because of this time, I would like to take on the challenge of "creating our own personalization in our own place" more subjectively.

    The situation changes every day and it is difficult to predict, but there are some projects that were created because of the corona disaster. It's not just anxiety that's there. The kindness that envelops intangible things, the ability to imagine something that cannot be seen in the eyes, and the connection between people in a new area. Please look forward to the "unseen scenery" that you can only meet in the city of Tokyo, and the many moving experiences.

  • About the Tokyo Biennale
  • The "Tokyo Biennale" is an international exhibition held at the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum in Ueno during the postwar reconstruction period. Above all, in 1970, the 10th edition with the theme of "human beings and matter" left a big mark on the history of Japanese art. Half a century has passed since then, and in today's Tokyo, where art and art have changed dramatically, we are about to start the "Tokyo Biennale" in 2020 as a place to experiment with new frames and mechanisms.
