  • THE WORLD IS STRANGE!:
    THE MANGA AND PAINTINGS OF TIGER TATEISHI AND YUICHI YOKOYAMA

    Tiger Tateishi (1941-1998) is known for a diverse range of work, including panoramic paintings filled with images that exemplify the era, humorous manga, picture books, and fantastic ceramics. Yuichi Yokoyama (b. 1967), meanwhile, has received acclaim for his unique neo-manga, which, while lacking either story or plot and making frequent use of panel layout, speech balloons, and onomatopoetic and mimetic words, dynamically express the passage of time with a sense of speed. This exhibition explores the charms of the two artists, who create a surrealistic and nonsensical world in their works by making the most of the distinctive features of painting and manga.

  • 2016-3 Collection Highlights & the Special Display: “Listening”

    This exhibition is made up of two parts: “Collection Highlights,” and a special display titled “Listening.”
    “Collection Highlights,” consisting of a group of works that were specially selected from the museum collection, introduces a diverse range of contemporary art expressions. From these works, we realize that although the motif might be the same, the approach and production method can vary greatly. In this edition, we focus on people and the human body. In the special display, “Listening,” we encourage viewers to prick up their ears and listen carefully to the works.
