・Plan overview

This event, which is the second after the first in August 2023, is titled "ART SESSION by Ginza Tsutaya Shoten NEW YEAR PARTY" and will feature approximately 100 notable artists who are expected to make further advances in 2024. The works will be gathered together. This time, in addition to the exhibition at GINZA ATRIUM, the central event space of Ginza Tsutaya Bookstore, we will be exhibiting a new project titled "ART SESSION SATELLITE" that focuses on small works that are easy to incorporate into everyday life. It will be held simultaneously at SQUARE. Artworks exhibited at satellite venues can be purchased on the spot on a first-come, first-served basis.

Saturday, January 20th will be by invitation only, but the two days of Sunday, January 21st and Monday, January 22nd will be open to the public, and anyone can freely enjoy the works. At the start of the new year 2024, we will deliver exciting encounters with art through “ART SESSION”.

・The main visual is a work drawn by Yujiro Ueno with a dragon motif.

The main visual for this time was created by Yujiro Ueno, an artist who continues to create paintings using living things based on the idea of “Ki'' in Oriental philosophy. Works depicting a dragon as a motif, in honor of the zodiac sign of 2024, will also be exhibited at the venue.

〈Yujiro Ueno comment〉
I am very happy to be able to present my dragon work at this event, which marks the beginning of the Year of the Dragon. The title of the work, “Banryu,'' refers to the dragon that is about to ascend to the sky. Please come and see us at the venue.
