GENBI Recollections|Exhibition

2020.7.28(Tue) — 12.27(Sun)

The Hiroshima City Museum of Contemporary Art (also known as GENBI for short) will temporary close on December 28, 2020 in order to renovate the entire facility, which was built over 30 years ago. (The museum is scheduled to reopen in March 2023.) While carrying on the ideas and designs of the building’s architect Kurokawa Kisho, the renovation project is intended to restore the facility’s basic functions as a museum as well as redesigning some areas and creating new spaces. Ahead of the project, we present a special exhibition and workshops called GENBI Recollections to etch the original form of the museum into viewers’ memories.
