MOT Annual is a group exhibition featuring young Japanese artists, with a focus on a unique aspect of contemporary art. The 2020 event looks at the invisible powers around us such as gravity, magnetism, and friction, and the works on display will center around those themes.

Some of the artists involved with this year's event include Junya Kataoka and Rie Iwatake, who are known for kinetic art installations where physical energy forms like magnetism and wind are applied to everyday objects. Other exhibitors include Yoko Shimizu, Yuta Nakajima, Goh Uozumi, and Gaetan Kubo.

Adult admission to the special exhibition is priced at 1300 yen.

I'm an expat who has lived abroad for almost a decade, including 7 years in Japan. I've also visited 44 of 47 prefectures and hope to get to the last three someday! I'm particularly fond of exploring off the beaten path destinations, gardens, and tea houses, and have a real interest in Japan's growing vegan scene.

They really know how to grab attention with the names of the exhibitions. "Invisible powers" - love it!

I always wondered why FANTANIMA exhibition lasts only one week in spite of the fact that it's very interesting? But I see there are too many exhibitions and arts worth to be exhibited in Tokyo!

That part is a shame 😔 I keep hoping for good news about travel opening up again.
