MOT Satellite 2018 Fall －To Become a Narrative
This event has ended.
“MOT Satellite” is an endeavor to take the activities of the Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo (MOT) outside－into the surrounding Kiyosumi Shirakawa neighborhood－while its building is closed for renovation. By holding artist exhibits and projects at local shops and historical sites, “MOT Satellite” lets visitors rediscover the richness and charm of this district.
The theme of the third event,“MOT Satellite 2018 Fall, is “To Become a Narrative.”To build momentum towards MOT’s grand reopening in late March 2019, it seeks an even deeper relationship with the district and its people. Artists and researchers are directly involving themselves in Kiyosumi Shirakawa and the surrounding areas, creating dialogues, artworks, and related programs born out of these discussions. Through these artworks and projects, the district’s memory is reawakening in the form of “narrative,” and a vital portrait of the district is emerging.
The main exhibits are installed in seven “MOT Spaces” in district hubs and former factory sites. As you explore the streets, please also visit the small-scale “MOT Spots” with exhibits inside coffee roasters and cafes and on shopping streets. Also be sure not to miss the colorful activities of local partner galleries and museums in the district.
The Kiyosumi-Shirakawa neighbourhood opens itself up to creative events while the Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo is closed.
