INFO.Takahiro Matsuo's PRISM / GLOW exhibition shines with special prismatic light at ARTBAY TOKYO this Christmas season.

ARTBAY TOKYO will host PRISM / GLOW, an exhibition of prism installations by artist Takahiro Matsuo, as a special art program created for Illumination Island Odaiba 2020. The new prism art and light works created for this exhibition will light up the ARTBAY HOUSE in transparent colors as if it were enveloped in glittering jewelry, creating a special illumination experience that can only be seen at ARTBAY TOKYO.

The ARTBAY CAFE at the venue will offer a limited time drink menu with designs inspired by the exhibition. In addition, Takahiro Matsuo's work brand EMISSION will have a pop-up store selling original jewelry and limited edition Christmas goods.
