09.October.2018 | SPOT

Corporate Collaboration Tokyo Project 2018 (CCTP ART TKO) will take place for the sixth year in a row from October 19 to November 4 in the Nakameguro and Daikanyama areas.


The event is a fusion of ground-breaking art and music that brings together corporations, towns, people and craftsmanship to revitalise Japan and further open up the opportunity for global exposure.

The theme this year is Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer. Together with the Vermeer exhibition that has been taking place at The Ueno Royal Museum since October 5, the event has acquired content from Bridgeman Images, a world-leading UK-based specialist in the distribution of art for reproduction.


Artists who have been inspired by Vermeer will create paintings theme on arguably one of the Dutch painter’s most famous pieces, Girl with a Pearl Earring.


ART&MUSIC WALK: Galleries Hitting the Streets!

Date: October 19, 2018 – November 4, 2018

Location: Participating shops in the Nakameguro and Daikanyama area


Various stores around the Nakameguro and Daikanyama area will be home to lots of different galleries exhibiting and selling art. There will also be a Vermeer tribute exhibition at the MDP Gallery in Nakameguro, as well as a giant 3D Johannes Vermeer art piece near the Nakameguro branch of Tsutaya Books. The “MUSIC WALK” which began last year will also take place again which will see musicians from numerous genres including classical and jazz come together at SPAME M in Nakameguro.

Vermeer Tribute Exhibition

Date: October 19, 2018 – November 4, 2018 (11:00-19:00)

Location: MDP Gallery, Nakameguro


An exhibition of Vermeer’s work has been taking place at The Ueno Royal Museum since October 5. The artist is known for his low number of works; it’s said that there are 35 paintings in existence. The last Vermeer exhibition at the museum was held back in 2008 and brought in 930,000 visitors which was comprised of a large number of non-Japanese people. It’s expected to be busy again this year and so a booking system has been put in place.


The tribute exhibition to be held from October 19 will see a band of contemporary artists inspired by Vermeer’s work come together who will bring out the underlying aspects of Girl with a Pearl Earring in lieu of the immediate visual importance and surface level aspects spread by the media.

Montmartre was the heart of the art movement in Paris from the end of the 19th-century to the early 20th-century. Even today it is visited by many tourists looking bask in its history. Place du Tertre can be credited as part of the reason of its popularity where tourists are entertained by painters setting up their easels and painting pictures. That scene of Place du Tertre will be recreated at Nakame Arukas, a landmark of Nakameguro’s. It will be a special one-day event of art, music and the smell of great food.
