The ground-floor Garage space at INTERSECT BY LEXUS – TOKYO will host a special seasonally themed library-style exhibition. Aptly titled “Spring is just around the corner”, let this fusion of books and art take you on an imaginary long spring drive.
The second-floor Bistro and Lounge space at INTERSECT BY LEXUS – TOKYO has around five hundred books for guests to enjoy. This spring exhibition downstairs in the Garage features an array of those titles: books with charming locations that inspire you to drive, books about famed cars you have always wanted to own, rare or out-of-print publications, and more! The Daikanyama branch of Tsutaya Books has handled book curation for INTERSECT BY LEXUS – TOKYO ever since it opened and made the choices for this exhibition.
An imaginary long spring drive is vividly brought to life with art by Bob Foundation, a creative unit known for its unrelenting pursuit of innovation and research. Art and greenery transform the Garage, immersing visitors into a literary world. On the walls, you can see a LEXUS LC500 departing on a journey, leaving the city behind, meandering through the suburbs and into the mountains, and finally arriving at a book-shaped tunnel.
Where does your imagination think it leads...?
Come to INTERSECT BY LEXUS – TOKYO and immerse yourself in the world of books.
Exhibition period: March 5 – April 26, 2021
