poster for Yasumasa Morimura "Bi-Class, Be Quiet"

This event has ended.

Yasumasa Morimura works in wide range of media such as photography, performance, film, and theater. He is well known for his self portrait series in which he inserts himself into Vincent van Gogh's self portrait, or Cézanne's still-life paintings. Born in 1951 in Osaka, Morimura studied at the Kyoto City University of Arts, and in 1988, he was in the International Venice Biennale: d'APERT utto in 1988. He is one of today's most highly recognized contemporary artists.

For this exhibition, the museum gallery space is transformed into an academic setting, mainly presenting about 80 pieces from the "Art History Series" including his versions of Vermeer, Cézanne, van Gogh, and Goya, displayed as though a class is being held. During the exhibition period, related events entitled "after school activities" or "homeroom discussions" have also been scheduled. In the final event, titled "After School Screening", Morimura will present his performance videos including his most recent work.

Please refer to the museum website for details on "Classroom Events".

おもしろかった!
授業形式の展示で、森村センセイのガイド説明を聴きながら作品が見れるのでわかりやすかったです。
とてもユニークな作品でしたよ。
最後に卒業試験を受けると、かわいい卒業証がいただけます☆

みる× する× しる× → なる○

ではなく。

みる×する×しる=なる!だ、と。つくづく思いました。

この展覧会のテーマはおそらく「なる」芸術。「ニセモノが我々の抱えている価値観を転倒させる。ニセモノがホンモノの地位を脅かすのだ。」これこそが森村氏のブレることない芸術哲学である。芸術家として培ってきた彼自身の"経験"と、展示されている作品を前にした時の実体験から得られた感覚の"経験"を融合させ、森村氏の作品として本展はデザインされていたように思う。

新作映像上映会と対談のイベントのある日を狙って行ってきました。
展覧会自体も、作家自体が解説するという新しい試みで、堪能できました。
