This event has ended.

The Fondation Cartier pour l’Art Contemporain presents its collection for the very first time in a major exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo (MOT). This exhibition brings together major works by over 30 internationally renowned artists from around the world.
The collection provides a surprising perspective on contemporary art, encompassing painting, sculpture, film and video, installation art and design. Three major leitmotivs run through the exhibition -the fantastical, the astounding and the intimate- in a presentation which invites the visitor to explore the unexpected beauty of the contemporary.
Since its creation in 1984, the Fondation Cartier has demonstrated a commitment to contemporary artists throughout their careers by special commissions on the production of new works. Throughout its history, the Fondation Cartier has been instrumental in the discovery of Japanese artists in France and in Europe. This is one of the major reasons why the Fondation Cartier has chosen the city of Tokyo for the unveiling of the most spectacular works of its collection.
Reaching out to the general public as well as art world specialists, this exhibition confirms Cartier’s commitment to contemporary art, demonstrating its role as a major patron of the arts and as an important interlocutor between artists and the public.

The highlight of the Fondation Cartier pour l’Art Contemprain exhibition is undoubtedly Ron Mueck’s “In Bed” (2005), also shown in the poster.

カルティエ現代美術財団コレクション展

「巨大さ」、これは現代アートの一大特徴と言えるかもしれない。それは、ロイ・リキテンシュタインの漫画のカットアップや、ジェフ・ウォールの写真など、ジャンルを問わずに普及してきた流れを見ても分かる。しかし、今回の展覧会の作品を詳細に見ていくと、その「巨大さ」という特徴にも各々ばらつきがあるように感じられる。
