Nezu Museum of Art Special Exhibition "Kirra raden"
Raden is a technique of decorating shells with sparkling naych layers by cutting them into the shape of a style, fitting them in and pasting them. "Screw" means to decorate with a snail, and "aen" means to decorate with shellfish. In Asia, lacquerware techniques were also used, mainly late-night shellfish and abalone shellfish. The color of the shell piece is not just white, it has a shimmer of blue to red gradient as if it were flashing from within. The world interwoven with the shellfish and the beautiful luster unique to lacquer has fascinated people since ancient times. In this exhibition, you will enjoy the charm of the kirara raden of the Chinese continent, the Korean Peninsula, Japan, and the Ryukyus while retesting the history of the acceptance and development of raden technology in Japan, centering on the collection of the Nezu Museum of Art. *This exhibition is by appointment.

Minato City Minato Science Museum 2021 Winter Special Exhibition "Moon" Exhibition
Japan announced its participation in the Artemis Project in October 2019. In July 2020, the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) signed a joint declaration on lunar exploration cooperation with NASA. In addition, JAXA announced that it will recruit new astronauts around autumn 2021, and the moon is currently attracting attention. This special exhibition takes up the forefront of the work and its technology as private companies take on the challenge of exploring the moon. Through the efforts of companies that make products familiar to our daily lives, such as automobiles, architecture, and clothing, why not feel that lunar exploration and space development are "the future that is right there"? You can see the technology used for lunar exploration, including a full-scale model of a lunar lander scheduled to land on the moon in 2022, and a model of the Luna Cruiser (1/10 scale) that JAXA and Toyota Motor Corporation are researching. In addition, in order to see the special exhibition from a more multi-angle perspective, the planetarium hall will screen two special programs that will be screened for the first time at the museum, "Imagine the Moon: Thoughts on the Moon" and "MARS1001 The Day When It Descends to Mars". In Minato-ku, which has been popular as a famous place for moon viewing since the Edo period, please touch the cutting-edge technology that the private sector is challenging and realize that lunar exploration is not a dream. * In order to prevent the spread of coronavirus infection at the National Museum of Science, visitors are required to make advance reservations (first-come-first-7).

DOMANI Tomorrow Exhibition 2021 Artists of the Agency for Cultural Affairs' Overseas Training Program for New Artists Space Will Be Born
The DOMANI Tomorrow Exhibition, which was held at the National Art Center, Tokyo at the beginning of each year, is now in its 23rd year. Faced with a pandemic and deep cultural interruptions from early spring, the event was at one point abuying. However, because of this situation, as a banner that the Agency for Cultural Affairs will continue to support young mid-career artists, following the "DOMANI Tomorrow Exhibition plus online 2020", which was developed online for the first time this summer and was well received, we will return to the real exhibition at the National Art Center, Tokyo again. This time, seven emerging artists with training experience in each country in the past 10 years will be joined by Kyo Takemura, Kengo Kito, and Kyotaro Hakamada, who are currently active at the forefront of the art scene, to reveal japanese actual and internationally open expressions that have entered the "2020s." The subtitle was "Space is born". With the 10th anniversary of the Great East Japan Earthquake just around the next decade, through the margins of space and landscape created by the disaster that are still deeply remembered, and the time margins experienced in the stay home of coronal disaster, I thought again about what is really important, and asked that the time is coming to open the door to the next future. Please look forward to an exhibition in which artists who have been working on the premise of international movement and presentation have been thinking in the midst of encountering a long-term obstructive art scene.
21_21 DESIGN SIGHT Exhibition "Translations Exhibition - Let's Understand 'Understanding'"
21_21 DESIGN SIGHT will hold "Translations Exhibition - Let's Understand 'Understanding'" from October 16, 2020. The exhibition director will be Dominique Chen, an information science researcher involved in a variety of expression media, who is involved in the field of art and design. The process of "translation" supports communication in order for the existence that should not be understood to be able to communicate with each other. In this exhibition, we regard the act called "translation" as a kind of "design of communication" and present the possibility of accepting each other's "understanding" by creating a space where you can feel the wonder of the language you use freely and the fun of "interpretation" and "misunderstanding" that comes from it. This exhibition will be held with the original session changed from the viewpoint of preventing the spread of new coronavirus infections. This exhibition will be held by introducing a pre-booking system to prevent the spread of new coronavirus infections.

Taro Okamoto Memorial Museum Special Exhibition "Facing Eyes"
Taro Okamoto started his career as a "Western-style painter", but the content of the paintings was very different from that of ordinary Western-style painters. Landscape paintings, portraits, still lifes, nude paintings... Because I do not draw a general Western subject at all. So what on earth was Taro drawing? Unfortunately, you can't see what it represents just by looking at the picture. However, there is only one thing that is clear. It is "Eyes". Taro's picture always has an eye. Moreover, many are multiple eyes. I don't know the specifics, but at least there is no doubt that taro was drawing "living things" and "life". Taro Okamoto was a writer who drew life. In particular, "confronting eyes" are frequent motifs. Two "life" talk, stare, and laugh at each other. And, several eyes make the vitality, make the crowd, and stare at the person who sees the person before one is 1999. In this exhibition, we will collect works depicting the creatures we face and have a great view. Why don't you confront Taro Okamoto's eyes that have dwelled on life? Image: "Smile" 1978

In addition, the exhibition of the museum, which is held in Tokyo, will introduce portraits of women that recall fragrances and works that symbolize the Art Deco era, with special additions from museums in Japan.
