Exhibition "Toward a DESIGN MUSEUM JAPAN" at 21_21 DESIGN SIGHT, Tokyo Midtown, Akasaka, Tokyo

25th October, 2013 - 9th February, 2014 | 21_21 DESIGN SIGHT, Tokyo Midtown, Akasaka, Tokyo
21_21 DESIGN SIGHT holds the "Toward a DESIGN MUSEUM JAPAN" exhibition. Design impacts every corner of our lives; it brings joy to everyday life but it also leads the way to industrial growth and affluence. Design museums are not just an archive that passes on this remarkable design culture to following generations but it is bound to become an essential key when thinking to our lives from here into the future.
Since opening in 2007, 21_21 DESIGN SIGHT has held 23 exhibitions starting from the "Tadao Ando Construction Site 2006 'A Hard-Fought Process'" and "Chocolate" exhibitions. Along with these exhibitions, we have dedicated itself to talk, workshops, and other educational programs. Our journey to present has been supported by our determination to create a true design museum in Japan.
This exhibition will contemplate the roles expected of 21st century design museums. This will be examined through new outlooks based on time; past, present, and future accompanied by introduction to past 21_21 DESIGN SIGHT exhibitions as examples. We hope that this exhibition will become an opportunity for many to reflect upon their lives, culture, and society and furthermore about the possibilities of design.   official website ››  http://www.2121designsight.jp/en/
