■“Taro Okamoto Museum of Art, Kawasaki 1999-2018”
Period :October 26 ,2019 to January 13 , 2020
The exhibition will showcase art work from previous exhibitions that primarily focus on the “Connection between art and society”, “Support for artists who will inspire the next generation”, and “Taro Okamoto’s fellow artists and their generation”.
For the “Connection between art and society” section, we will present an exhibition with motifs of everyday life for Japanese people such as earthquakes (an issue inherent to life in Japan) food, railways, etc. or films and television characters such as Godzilla and Ultraman. This exhibition will highlight the connections between art and these societal phenomenon that would otherwise normally be thought of as unrelated to art.
For the “Support for artists who will inspire the next generation” section, we will present modern artists who have won the Taro Okamoto Award for contemporary Art.
We believe that projects such as this one will allow us to look back on 20 years of the museums various projects while serving as an opportunity to share the museum’s history with many people and expanding public awareness of the museums role.
