What You Can Experience at Tokyo Biennale

Exhibition Experience

An art experience unique to each site
An art exhibition in which visitors can experience the works by exploring venues scattered throughout each area. The works vary from artist to artist, but each can be enjoyed as a work unique to the venue in which it is displayed.

+EX Experience

A new experience born from digital media
When you visit a real venue and hold up your smartphone, you will be able to enjoy new experiences such as AR works that overlay the scenery of the venue with the artwork to create a new landscape, and story-based video and audio that can only be experienced on site.
