- Modern Art Revisited: from the collection of Fukuoka Art Museum
Opened in 1979, the Fukuoka Art Museum is a major institution known for its extensive collection of some 16,000 items, centering on two main pillars: modern and contemporary art, and antiques. As the museum is currently in the midst of a major renovation project in preparation for its reopening in 2019, this exhibition features approximately 70 masterpieces of American, European, and Japanese art from the museum collection. From Dalí and Warhol to Yayoi Kusama, the exhibition provides a valuable opportunity to retrace the course of modern art, marked by the rise and fall of a variety of movements in the 20th century, at this moment in time.
- 2018-2 Collection Highlights & Special Feature: The Century with Mushroom Clouds/Prayer
The exhibition is made up of three sections: “Collection Highlights,” and two special features, “The Century with Mushroom Clouds,” and “Prayer.”In the first, we focus on artists who, as leaders in a number of important trends, are indispensable to any discussion of 20th century art.
The date August 6, the anniversary of the atomic bomb and a day that will never be forgotten in Hiroshima, will fall during the exhibition. To commemorate this fact, we present two special features focusing on art related to the bomb.
