This unique architectural and cultural journey is hosted and curated by Kazuyo Sejima, the director of Teien Art Museum, architect and a long-term collaborator of Prada.
For Prada Mode, the Tokyo Metropolitan Teien Art Museum will be transformed into a space where the guests can explore art in different forms and experience the historic architecture, the museum and the site-specific art works, curated by Kazuyo Sejima, located in the large gardens surrounding the museum. The main temporary pavilion, a wooden curved surface to host conversations, will be placed in the European garden; while various areas will be created spreading along the space for the guests to enjoy the venue as a whole.
“I’m very happy to have the opportunity to host and curate Prada Mode at Teien Art Museum. This is a new type of connection and conversation in which architecture, garden, art and music become one. This event represents the opportunity for the museum to become a new public space.” says Kazuyo Sejima.
Prada Mode Tokyo will include various activities such as music performances that range from classical to minimal and analog, dynamic conversations, tea ceremony, original workshops, as well as refreshments featuring local and global culinary delights. Public will also be welcomed to a selection of these activities.
