Exhibition "Christo and Jeanne-Claude 'L'Arc de Triomphe, Wrapped'"

June 13 (Mon), 2022 - February 12 (Sun), 2023

21_21 DESIGN SIGHT will hold an exhibition starting on June 13, that will examine the genesis of Christo and Jeanne-Claude’s work. The exhibition will be directed by Pascal Roulin, a Paris- and Tokyo-based video director, and will feature the precursors of "L’Arc de Triomphe, Wrapped, Paris, 1961–2021" on display which will illustrate the processes that brought the project to fruition.
The exhibition will also be a celebration of all those who followed in the artist-couple's footsteps. We celebrate how this remarkable team surmounted even the challenges posed by a global pandemic through the power of creativity and shared joy.

Exhibition Director: Pascal Roulin

UPCOMING PROGRAM

Exhibition "The Original"

Exhibition "The Original"

March 3 (Fri), 2023 - June 25 (Sun), 2023

This Exhibition gathers designs that have exerted a deep influence on daily life. These we define as 'The Original.' 'The Original,' however, does not only signify the 'beginning' of a history of making. Its role is also to stimulate and challenge later designers. 'The Original' is endowed with a fascination to ensure its lasting influence, and its essence will remain long afterwards.
Over one hundred products designated as 'The Original' are exhibited, selected by three forefront figures in today's design world, Takahiro Tsuchida, Naoto Fukasawa and Kaoru Tashiro. The items range from furniture, tableware, and textiles to toys. Accompanying the objects they have chosen are images and texts, explicating the works. The exhibition philosophy is laid comprehensibly and enjoyably.
By reconsidering 'The Original,' as a reference point and a clue to today's designs, we will bring you timeless starting-points for design, and reveal links to the designers who created them, in the hope of broadening your thought and action.

Exhibition Director: Takahiro Tsuchida
