IMM Tokyo presents: Art Exhibition “Cultural BYO…Ne(ね)!”

Exhibition 展覧会


“Immigration Museum Tokyo (IMM Tokyo)” introduces the cultural background of people with roots overseas living in Japan. This year, continuing from last year, we will hold a multinational art exhibition.


This year’s title, “Cultural BYO…Ne(ね)!” refers to the custom of BYO (Bring Your Own) mainly in English-speaking countries, where people bring their own drinks and other items to parties and restaurants. With this exhibit, people with roots overseas brought together their creations, based on this concept, to their own will. The works gathered here include paintings, crafts, videos, traditional music, dishes made with memorable spices etc.; this truly is a crystallization of a wide variety of artwork and daily life. This will be a setting for all of these works and expressions to be shown.
We hope that this exhibition will be a place for you to encounter the people, their works and expressions, and their culture in a new way, while thinking about the lives and the creativity behind each item.
