The "Sports Exhibition" is a special exhibition that not only introduces sports and athletes, but also captures the wonders of sports from a scientific perspective and allows you to see the technical aspects of the people who support them.

The National Art Center, Tokyo Special Exhibition "Kashiwa Sato Exhibition"
Since its opening in 2007, the National Art Center, Tokyo has regularly held exhibitions on design and architecture under the activity policy of "an art museum that introduces various art expressions and raises new perspectives." As a project that embodies this philosophy, we will hold an exhibition by Kashikazu Sato (born 1965), one of Japan's leading creative directors. In the 1990s, Sato, who worked on a series of innovative advertising projects as an art director at Hakuhodo Co., Ltd., has worked on innovative VI and CI plans and brand strategies for a wide variety of clients, from companies to educational institutions such as kindergartens and universities, hospitals, museums, entertainment, fashion world, and regional industries, since independence in 2000. It has attracted attention from home and abroad. Sato's unique and rare methodology, which applies the fundamental principles of design -- organizing the information to be conveyed, extracting its essence, replacing it with visual languages and symbols that everyone can understand at a close, and communicating widely -- to a wide range of fields that go far beyond its original domain, not only extends and revamps the concept of design, but also affects everything in society, from culture, economic activity, and our daily lives. This exhibition, the largest solo exhibition ever held, will introduce the trajectory of sato's own curated activities over a period of about 30 years from multiple angles. Visitors to the exhibition room will experience sato's unique creativity through an exciting experience of appreciating his many works as works.

Mori Art Museum Another Energy: The Power to Continue To Challenge: 16 Female Artists from around the World
In recent years, there has been a movement around the world to correct diverse identity imbalances such as gender, race, ethnicity, and creed, and to emphasize diversity. In contemporary art, for the past decade or so, attention has been focused on female artists who began their activities in the 1950s and 1970s and have continued to this day. The Another Energy Exhibition will focus on 16 female artists in their 70s and above who continue to take on challenges around the world, shedding light on their activities. The age of 16 ranges from 71 to 105, all of them with careers spanning more than 50 years. He is also from 14 countries around the world and has a wide range of current bases of operations. They have continued their own creative activities without being bound by the evaluation of museums and art markets, while maintaining their beliefs in the environment in which they were placed and the changing times. In this exhibition, we will consider what "Another Energy" is, a special power of their long careers, through a variety of powerful works such as paintings, images, sculptures, large-scale installations, and performances. As the world seeks to recover from its unprecedented situation, their continued beliefs and lifelong walks will give us new powers to take on challenges.
