Life in Art Exhibition Started
"Life in Art," a project to expand art based on the theme of everyday art, has introduced the works of artists – no matter famous or unknown, ancient or modern, from Japan or overseas – whose creations resonate with us, and has been holding exhibitions at IDÉE and MUJI stores so far.
In order to further expand our efforts, we are holding the "Life in Art Exhibition" from Friday, July 9 to Sunday, September 5 at three types of venues, IDÉE TOKYO, MUJI GINZA, and Satellite Galleries, under the theme of "Each Life in Art”.
MUJI GINZA will hold art exhibits throughout the entire building, including the MUJI HOTEL, presenting the works of 27 artists. IDÉE TOKYO will host an auction for works of more than 50 artists, including those who have close connections with IDÉE and MUJI, to connect art to the next generation. In addition, we will expand the number of places where people can encounter art as "Life in Art Satellite Galleries" by connecting with 31 stores, hotels and galleries.
In addition, during this period, a limited-time POP-UP store will open in Kuramae, downtown Tokyo. We will select, edit and sell samples and stock items collected from around the world, as well as store fixtures that have served their purpose among the many things lying dormant in the warehouses of MUJI and IDÉE.
By incorporating art into daily life, the exhibition aims, through art, to encourage people to think about their relationship with the community and the society they live in as well as the connections among people, and to reconsider their lives. We hope that the "Life in Art Exhibition" will bring art closer to you, help you appreciate the diverse value of art, and lead you to find the one and only work that moves you.
