Venue : Tsutaya Bookstore, Roppongi When : Jun 21st - Aug 29th 2021, 7:00am - 8:00pm

For a limited time, the Tsutaya Bookstore in Roppongi will be hosting an exhibition focused on hand-themed works from Masaharu Sato (1973 - 2019). Sato had received various art accolades throughout his career, including the 12th Taro Okamoto Contemporary Art Award in 2009.

The works on display are sourced from one of his video projects, and they depict hands in a variety of ways -- a hand stroking a cat, a hand brushing teeth, a hand turning a page, and a child's hands playing with a toy. The poignancy of an exhibition centered around hands is emphasized in the current global climate, with hand contact such as handshakes nixed at present due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Getting there

Tsutaya Bookstore in Roppongi is located within the Roppongi Hills Gate Tower complex. It can be accessed within 5 minutes on foot from Azabujuban Station, or around 7 minutes on foot from Roppongi Station.
