CLAMP@MOBiLE Fes! 2011 news

CLAMP’s official mobile website CLAMP@MOBiLE announced dates and a venue for the events known as CLAMP@MOBiLE Fes! 2011.

February 5, 2011: special art exhibition (entrance free of charge but only for CLAMP@MOBiLE members).
February 6, 2011: special event limited for 200 @MOBiLE members picked by lottery.

Both events (art exhibit and special event) will take place at the AMLUX TOKYO (5th Floor, AMLUX Hall) in Ikebukuro, Tokyo.

The announcement also says that other projects related to CLAMP@MOBiLE Fes! 2011 will be announced in the future.

So is the exhibition going to be a one-day thing? There is nothing about the exhibition opening to the general public later. And that hall looks like a good place for screenings and talk shows, but not an art exhibition O.o

That’s all the info we have so far!

More about the upcoming CLAMP Art Exhibition

This other japanese blogger has more information about the upcoming CLAMP Art Exhibition to be held next year.

Confirming the rumor from my previous post, the exhibition will indeed be part of the CLAMP@MOBiLE Fes! 2011 activities and will be held in Ikebukuro (Tokyo) in February.

The bad news is that the exposition will be exclusive to members of the CLAMP@MOBiLE service.

In addition to the Art Exhibition, tickets to a Special Event will be given out by lottery to a selected amount of members.

More details about the Art Exhibition (such as date and venue) and the Special Event will be announced by the end of October.

Personally I am a little disappointed with that, if the exhibition stays closed to CLAMP@MOBiLE members, only, it might not get much attention from the press or attract possible new fans at all. On the other hand, I’m looking forward to know more about this Special Event and I hope the CLAMP members themselves will participate.

By the way, tomorrow marks 1 year since the end of Tsubasa (of course we had the epilogue later on). Time flies, huh?

Rumor: CLAMP Art Exhibition in February, 2011

According to this japanese blogger, there will be a new CLAMP Art Exhibition next February in Ikebukuro, Tokyo.

Today CLAMP-NET.COM informed that new information was updated about the CLAMP@MOBiLE Fes! 2011 event. I am on my way to confirm if this news refers to the Art Exhibition and I’ll post here as soon as I can confirm that.

If confirmed, this would be the first CLAMP Art Exhibition since CLAMP Su, which was held in commemoration of CLAMP’s 15th Anniversary in 2004-2005.

Veeeery excited about this! Here’s hoping that the expo will include talk shows, signing sessions and original goodies!

Stay tuned for more info!
