    UESHIMA MUSEUM to Open in Shibuya in June 2024 - A New Perspective Connecting the Future through Contemporary Art

    UESHIMA MUSEUM to Open in Shibuya in June 2024 - A New Perspective Connecting the Future through Contemporary Art

    In June 2024, UESHIMA MUSEUM will open to the public in Shibuya, Tokyo, a city that continues to develop as a crossroads of diverse cultures. The museum will exhibit selected contemporary art pieces from UESHIMA COLLECTION, a collection of over 650 works by a wide range of domestic and international artists based on the theme of "contemporaneity" and aligned with various themes.
    Located on the former site of the British School in Tokyo within Shibuya Kyoiku Gakuen, UESHIMA MUSEUM aims to serve not only as an exhibition space but also as a venue for educational and cultural promotion, providing various opportunities for the development of the next generation of artists, curators, and critics.

    **About UESHIMA MUSEUM**
    UESHIMA MUSEUM is located on the grounds of Shibuya Kyoiku Gakuen, the alma mater of UESHIMA COLLECTION owner Kankuro Ueshima. It is highly regarded for its emphasis on international perspective and high ethical standards in education under the fundamental goal of "Seek and Think for Oneself." (“Jicho-Jiko”) The museum’s building, named “Ueshima Tower, Shibuya Kyoiku Gakuen”, was renovated from the former British School in Tokyo, which was established in 1988 and held its opening ceremony in September of the following year in the presence of the late British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. The British School in Tokyo was utilized until August 2023 and was reopened as UESHIMA MUSEUM after renovation.

    Address: 1-21-18 Shibuya, Shibuya-ku, Tokyo
    Ueshima Tower, Shibuya Kyoiku Gakuen (7 floors, total of 1400㎡)
    Website: https://ueshima-museum.com/
    Museum Director: Kankuro Ueshima
    Advisors: Yukie Kamiya, Junya Yamamine

    **UESHIMA MUSEUM’s Philosophy = Vision**
    To be a space for contemplating "contemporaneity" through art.

    **UESHIMA MUSEUM’s Purpose of Establishment = Mission**
    Artistic expression, which seamlessly transcends boundaries and is diverse, personal, and social, has created numerous possibilities beyond people's imagination. Reflecting on art means reflecting on our past, present, and future. UESHIMA MUSEUM sees the significance and mission of collecting artworks to cultivate true freedom of imagination and innovative thinking, as well as to pass on the perspectives and challenges artists present through their works to the next generation.
    Through a wide range of activities including creating opportunities to support young artists and collaborating with educational institutions, the museum aims to contribute to the revitalization of the art scene and aspire to embody "contemporaneity" while living in society.

    **About UESHIMA COLLECTION**
    Established in Feb 2022 by entrepreneur and investor Kankuro Ueshima. He has begun his full-scale collection activities ever since.
    Ueshima has always been agile and responsive in the concept of "contemporaneity”, and he quickly embodies the future and proactively contributes to building a better society. Based on the idea that both business and art are universal, UESHIMA COLLECTION primarily focuses on artists with a strong sense of "contemporaneity", or young artists who are engaged in progressive creative activities.
