A number of items from the artist will be on display, spanning his childhood and his awakening to rock music, his first band SAVER TIGER, X JAPAN, his solo activities, and his fascination with the world. The theme of the exhibition is “The future that hide has in store for us.” 

     

    The exhibition will display precious items that showcase Hide’s warmth and one-of-a-kind worldview, including costumes he actually wore, his favorite guitar, and handwritten lyrics to his famous songs that everyone has heard.

     

    The main visual for this exhibition is based on a photograph by photographer Canno Hideo, and is a work by Tadaomi Shibuya, an artist active in a wide range of genres both domestically and internationally. It was inspired by Hide’s famous song Pink Spider. A selection of hide merchandise will also be on sale at the venue.
