poster for Cherish, Your Imagination

Ends in 50 days

The Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo (MOT) is delighted to announce its upcoming exhibition “Cherish, your imagination” which invites parents, children and people of all ages to revisit the childlike innocence within each one of us, as a first step of experiencing the magnificent potential of artistic expression.

The exhibition returns us to the creative child’s mind that we may have forgotten as we became adults, and features media-technology based artworks and screenings to appeal to adults and children alike. Wandering through the themed spaces of “Senses” - as Body, Sound and Words, Oblivion and Galaxy, visitors experience art based on interactive participation, physical expression, sound, writing and video, as well as historical documents and artworks from the MOT Collection. Throughout the duration of this exhibition, we will also offer several workshops held in cooperation with local communities and educational institutions.
While also a “contemporary art show for children,” this exhibition takes a neotenic approach (=adult mind with childlike appearance) to equalize adults and children temporarily. Through the exhibition, we try to learn and consider highly acclaimed new and old art and technology sent out into the world from Japan after the end of the Second World War. Visitors are invited to regard the artworks in close detail, become part of interactive pieces, take commemorative photos and get in touch with outer space as they take a tour through the exhibition area. After enjoying a screening of artworks at the end of the exhibition, visitors are given back their forgotten “real names,” like in Michael Ende’s Neverending Story, in order to reunite them with the fascination of the familiar world. We would be delighted if visitors young and old, children and parents, friends, couples and single visitors return from the museum with fresh, newly discovered sensualities, as if having been reborn. As art and our daily lives adapt to new changes, in the brief period between summer and fall 2020, when we may just witness the singularity between culture and technology, we invite you to enjoy this exhibition that aims to remind us of the childlike wonder within us all and asks us to consider new possibilities of artistic expression.
