CURRENT PROGRAM

Exhibition "The Year 2121: Futures In-Sight"

Exhibition "The Year 2121: Futures In-Sight"

December 21 (Tue), 2021 - May 22 (Sun), 2022

One hundred years after the opening of this exhibition will be the year 2121. Our concept derives from pondering how the world will be in that year, which coincidentally shares numbers with 21_21 DESIGN SIGHT, the name of our institute. The exhibition goes beyond imagining foreseen futures by taking inspiration from the tool "Future Compass," and uses behavior and outputs apparent in today’s daily life to visualize ideas concerning the future. This exhibition will be formulated together with designers, artists, thinkers, engineers, and researchers. Taking the stance of "thinking about the future," the exhibition will provide opportunities for nurturing rich insight into how we might create a tomorrow through the medium of design.

Exhibition Director: Michiaki Matsushima

Opening hours have been changed to 11:00 - 19:00 (entrance until 18:30) from March 23, 2022.

Exhibition "Christo and Jeanne-Claude 'L'Arc de Triomphe, Wrapped'"

June 13 (Mon), 2022 - February 12 (Sun), 2023

21_21 DESIGN SIGHT will hold an exhibition starting on June 13, that will examine the genesis of Christo and Jeanne-Claude’s work. The exhibition will be directed by Pascal Roulin, a Paris- and Tokyo-based video director, and will feature the precursors of "L’Arc de Triomphe, Wrapped, Paris, 1961–2021" on display which will illustrate the processes that brought the project to fruition.
The exhibition will also be a celebration of all those who followed in the artist-couple's footsteps. We celebrate how this remarkable team surmounted even the challenges posed by a global pandemic through the power of creativity and shared joy.

Exhibition Director: Pascal Roulin
