"The Myth of Tomorrow" Exhibition

Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo

poster for "The Myth of Tomorrow" Exhibition

This event has ended.

"The Myth of Tomorrow" is a work that Taro Okamoto was commissioned to make for a hotel in Mexico City between 1968 and 1969. However, due to a deterioration in the financial affairs of the people who made the commission, the work was not installed as planned and went missing for many years. Finally, some 30 years later it was rediscovered in September 2003.

Following its hugely popular display in Tokyo's Shiodome area in Summer 2006, this exhibition presents the work "The Myth of Tomorrow" together with a preparatory sketch for it that was found in Taro Okamoto's atelier last year.

大きい太郎の画というだけでオススメなのだが、実際、それ以上でもない。この5年程度、太郎をブームとして扱うのに嫌気がさしているからだろうか。

渋谷に太陽の神話を!ていうでっかい横断幕を井の頭線の駅で見かけたのですが、あれは本気なのでしょうか・・・・・・・。もっとふさわしい場所がある気がする。

救いようのない絵なので、気の弱い人にはお勧めしません。


後、MOTコレクション第2期が素晴らしいです。現美の考える文脈というのが分かりやすくて面白かったです。同じ現代作家として非常にお勧め。
