A Century of Flux in Japanese Modern/ Contemporary Art
This exhibition will survey the Japanese art of the past 100 years, from the 1910s to 2010s, through works mainly in the museum's collection. Its aim to show how the artists, by taking a discerning critical perspective, have selected strands of already established and radically new styles and techniques, and woven their own distinctive worlds.
By surveying the artistically important works that punctuate Japanese modern / contemporary art history, in galleries on all three of the museum's floors, the exhibition will profile the history of one hundred years.

This book will cover works from 2007 to recent times, and convey the magnitude of this contemporary artist's pieces. In spite of the rich creativity and color, many of the works also reveal a sharp criticism of the modern world. With themes as varying as simple kitchens, expansive cities, and the political borders of countries, the phantasmagoric nature of the world he draws comes as a welcome surprise.
