    Roppongi Art Night is a weekend full of pop-up exhibitions and street performances that take place in Roppongi, a vibrant town full of art and design.

    The eighth edition this year will feature the theme “Mirai-no-matsuri” or a festival for the future, to assemble, share and pass down artistic and creative expressions to the future.

    The main programme artist in 2017 is the photographer and film director Mika Ninagawa. She sets the tone for the Night in vibrant colours, in an image of a nocturnal festival in Asia, lit by multicoloured lanterns. Also this year, the Night will launch a “Southeast Asia Project”. The programme will bring together artists from, and related to, the region, who will create and display works on the occasion.

    Mika Ninagawa will produce multiple installations with fantastically colourful motifs that resonate with the Night’s theme. They are on display just for a night!
