Re: Startline 1963−1970/2023
Sympathetic Relations between the Museum and Artists as Seen in the Trends in Contemporary Japanese Art Exhibition
2023.04.28 fri. - 07.02 sun.
Trends in Contemporary Japanese Art was a series of contemporary art exhibitions that was launched to coincide with the opening of the National Museum of Modern Art, Kyoto in 1963.
Introducing a wide range of pioneering trends in art of the 1960s, an era that saw tremendous changes in concepts, formats, and materials, the series garnered a great deal of attention at the time. While introducing some of the principal works that were featured in Trends in Contemporary Japanese Art, the present exhibition revisits the museum’s start some 60 years ago by tracing contemporary curators’ view of the art scene and their vision of the museum.
