After the series launched in London in November 2021, Prada brought “Prada Extends”” to Tokyo on July 21st 2022. This edition comprised a duo of events curated by British-born, Canadian-raised electronic musician and Prada collaborator Richie Hawtin aka Plastikman: a conversation and a celebration. The first was staged at the Prada Miyashita Park store in the Shibuya district, followed by a party at Terrada, a center for art and music, including one of the largest gallery complexes in Japan.
Prada Extends Tokyo was a celebration of Japanese culture, of music, of creative communities that connect figures around the world. The line-up of the event included Richie Hawtin’s performance as well as a live show from South Korean producer, beat maker and artist Lionclad; Tokyo-based artist machìna; and the Japanese electronic musician and producer Yuri Urano. Each talent was paired with a Japanese-based visual artist: bringing Richie Hawtin with Kaoru Tanaka/Performed by Manami Sakamoto; Lionclad with Ken-ichi Kawamura; machìna with Shohei Fujimoto; and Yuri Urano with Manami Sakamoto.
