Shibuya PARCO Announces “Fan Gathering” Themed ‘Mickey Mouse Now and Future’ Exhibition
PARCO has been working with Walt Disney Japan to produce the upcoming ‘Mickey Mouse Now and Future’ exhibit, which will be held between November 19 and December 19 in the Shibuya PARCO 4F ‘PARCO MUSEUM TOKYO.’ The art collaboration project will express the present and future of Mickey Mouse, as created by Mickey-loving artists from around the world. The exhibition was curated in NANAZUKA, a contemporary art gallery in Shibuya.
Mickey Mouse embodies Walt Disney’s principles of “INNOVATION, CREATIVITY, IMAGINATION and STORYTELLING.” As the Walt Disney Company’s global ambassador, the mouse has inspired fans all around the world. He was first shown in the 1928 movie ‘Steamboat Willie’ and was voiced by Walt Disney himself.
Tanaami Keiichi, who will be displaying his art at the exhibition, described his memories of seeing the movie after the war.
“When I was a child, I watched Disney’s ‘Steamboat Willie’ at a small theatre near Meguro Station. I had only seen stop motion movies before then, so I was astonished by Mickey’s fluid movements, even drawing him in my notepad under the dim light of the emergency exit. Once I got home, I colored my drawings and began covering my bedroom walls with them. I was so satisfied, I felt like I could dance!”
Mickey Mouse also appeared in the 1940 movie “Fantasia,” which combined the splendours of classical music with brilliant colors, complete with fluid and graceful motion movements. It was considered one of the greatest movies of the 20th century and is still capturing audiences to this day.
The exhibition will feature memory-driven artwork from artists from Japan and around the world. International exhibitors include Javier Calleja from Malaga in Spain, New York-based Yoon Hyup from Korea, London-based James Jarvis from England, and the Los Angeles-based Darren Romanslli from England. From Japan, the Tokyo based Sorayama Hajime, Tanaami Keiichi, and Yoshirotten.
Javier Calleja and Sorayama Hajime have also collaborated to produce a giant 3D Mickey Mouse, which will be displayed as public art in Shibuya PARCO.
Don’t miss out on this exhibition where you can feel the artists’ love for Mickey Mouse.

Atarashii Gakko! and PARCO Culture Festival P.O.N.D. Release Special Collab Video
12.October.2021 | MUSIC
In 2021, the four-member girl group Atarashii Gakko! joined 88rising, a U.S.-based label helping to promote Asian music globally. Since then, they have continued to attract worldwide attention with their unique sound and eccentric choreography. Now, to promote P.O.N.D., a 10-day culture festival at Shibuya PARCO, the two have come together for a special collaborative video!
ATARASHII GAKKO! × P.O.N.D. – Pineapple Kryptonite (SHIBUYA SHORT VER.)
Produced by Money Mark, known as the best sound producer and melody maker in the alternative music world and working with the Beastie Boys for nearly 20 years, Pineapple Kryptonite has been a smash hit. Though the original music video was filmed in California, this version shows the girls fighting off a monster attacking Shibuya PARCO. The video was directed by up-and-coming filmmaker Oudai Kojima.
The video is currently available on YouTube, and will also be popping up on screens across Shibuya during the cultural festival!
Comment from the Members
“We walked around PARCO so many times our feet ached, and we shouted so loudly at the giant monster our throats were sore! The best part was messing with the avocados, gummies, and dry ice in the lab scene.
Be sure to check out the video we made with Shibuya PARCO!”

GQ Japan and ITOCHU Textiles have released a video of The “O.SHIRO” Collection Vol.2 fashion show, highlighting domestic textile production areas around Japan. The video is now available on the special GQ Japan website, as well as the GQ Japan official YouTube channel.
GQ was first published in the United States in 1957 and is now published in 21 countries around the world.
The “O.SHIRO” Collection (o-shiro meaning ‘castle’ in Japanese) is a collaborative collection bringing Japanese textile producers and fashion brands together. The first event was held at Okayama Castle in 2019, with Okayama being an area known for denim production. The second event was held at Nagoya Castle, located in the famed Bishu wool production area. The theme of the most recent showing was ‘ethical consumption,’ a big topic in manufacturing. Three increasingly global brands took center stage: ANREALAGE, beautiful people, and sulvam. Models present include Taiki&Noah, Dori Sakurada, Mila Aina, and Satsuki Nakayama.
A patchwork collection from ANREALAGE using textiles from the Bishu region was released on October 4. On October 7, a collection from beautiful people will include textiles from Wakayama, while on October 14, sulvam will release a collection made from Okayama and Hiroshima denim. Certain pieces from The “O.SHIRO” Collection will be on display on the 3rd floor of Shibuya PARCO.
