Collection Exhibition2017-1 Collection Highlights & Special Feature1: Experimental Film/Special Feature2: Various Silkscreens

This exhibition is composed of three parts: “Collection Highlights” plus the two special features “Experimental Films” and “Various Silkscreens.”

“Collection Highlights” will present a carefully curated selection of the Museum’s holdings, showcasing a diverse range of work focusing primarily on trend-setting practitioners of 20th-century American contemporary art. The first of the special features, titled “Experimental Film,” will shine a spotlight on video and film works, already well established as a contemporary art genre; taking viewers back to the dawn of video art, which began to take off in the late 1960s thanks to the development and uptake of video technology, and providing an overview of various experiments in video art up to the present day. The second special feature, “Various Silkscreens,” will examine the printmaking technique of silkscreen. Tadashi Tonoshiki, whose work is featured in the concurrent exhibition “Tadashi Tonoshiki: the Source of a Compelling Reversal,” is also known for his enthusiastic adoption of silkscreen printing from the 1980s onward. Viewing the two exhibitions together will allow visitors to enjoy a wide-ranging selection of silkscreen expression produced by both Japanese and international artists.
