The theme for the Nihonbashi venue is Old Edo: The Refreshing Cool of Goldfish.
Goldfish were a deep-rooted part of commoner culture in Nihonbashi during the Edo period,
and the culture of watching goldfish swim as a means of “feeling cool” is alive and well in the present.
The venue is styled after the “Palace of the Dragon King.”
“Tamaterium”, a new work inspired by the story of the Urashima Taro treasure chest,
will appear for the first time, creating an aquatic Japanese world with an enchanting feel out of the everyday.
Noted figures appearing at the Nihonbashi venue will be joined by an aquatic world of 8,000 fish, among them goldfish,
creating a Palace of the Dragon King experience as only ART AQUARIUM can.
The information on the artworks will be released sequentially.
Another side of ART AQUARIUM, NIGHT AQUARIUM starts every evening at 7 pm.
The daytime exhibition undergoes a complete transformation, as the lighting and sound direction change over to night mode.
Inside the venue, you can take your time and enjoy the displays at your leisure, with a Dassai (the sake presented by Prime Minister Abe to President Obama on the occasion of his visit to Japan) or our original kingyo cocktail in hand.
At NIGHT AQUARIUM, you can also enjoy the traditional arts of Japan, as well as special performances of a sort that cannot be seen on a regular basis.
Top DJs and artists from Japan and beyond participate on weekends, as the venue transforms into a cutting-edge club lounge.
ART AQUARIUM has birthed a kind of “ecological art” that is the only example of its kind, not only in Japan, but in the world. It has been supported by 7.3 million people.
No matter your nationality, gender, or age, we invite you to experience a creative space that brings together in perfect harmony the traditional culture of Japan and the latest in music, when the ART AQUARIUM space turns into an entertainment space in the form of NIGHT AQUARIUM.
