The first comprehensive exhibition in Japan to focus entirely on large-scale installations by composer and artist Ryuichi Sakamoto (1952-2023) is set to open at the Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo in December 2024.

Sakamoto has always remained at the forefront of his time throughout his diverse artistic activities. Since the 2000s, he has been devoted to the creation of three-dimensional sound installations, which he developed and executed in collaboration with various artists. This exhibition looks back at Sakamoto’s pioneering, experimental creative artworks, including several of his most well-known past works, a new work for this particular occasion envisioned before his passing, and a chronicle of his artistic endeavors dynamically constructed in spaces in and around the museum building.

Sakamoto’s large-scale installations were shown at piknic (Seoul) in 2018, M WOODS (Beijing) in 2021, and M WOODS (Chengdu) in 2023, and his latest ground-breaking mixed reality concert piece KAGAMI is touring New York, Manchester, London, and many future locations, continuing to make an impact even after his death. An homage exhibition, Tribute to Ryuichi Sakamoto: Music / Art / Media, will also be held at the NTT ICC Inter Communication Center starting December 16, 2023.

The Ryuichi Sakamoto Exhibition (Tentative Title) is scheduled to run from December 21, 2024, through March 30, 2025. Stay tuned for more upcoming updates and information.
