Chie Morimoto and Shinya Nakajima Exhibition

Chie Morimoto and Shinya Nakajima Exhibition

We will be hosting a new exhibition by two creators working at the forefront of todayʼs advertising and design industries: Chie Morimoto and Shinya Nakajima.

The exhibition will cover the process of creating an advertisement from the time of its inception until it permeates into society. Featured materials will include CD jackets, artwork from music videos, artistic sets, video storyboards and “the making of advertisement”, a special exhibit detailing how a TV commercial is made.

The museum will become a stage where the idiosyncrasies of these two creators can interact, producing an entertaining and hands-on exhibition that all our guests can enjoy. It promises to be an intriguing insight into the goals and methods employed by Morimoto and Nakajima in their creation of advertisements.
