"Imaginary Museum of the O Collection - Magical Museum Tour Room 6 Fumiaki Akahane + Toshiyuki Konishi: New New Painting" Exhibition
This event has ended.
Tokyo Wonder Site Hongo is hosting an exciting new exhibition in the Imaginary Museum of the O-collection - Magical Museum Tour. This latest installment in the series is Room 6 "Fumiaki Akahane & Toshiyuki Konishi - New New Painting".
Continuing on from a series launched last year, this show contains works from the collection of Satoshi Okada. Our aim is to provide a permanent venue for works by emerging Japanese contemporary artists similar to those in the permanent collections in an art museum.
The Okada collection includes numerous notable works by emerging Japanese artists selected for inclusion by adhering to unconventional perspectives, while the artists are themselves still relatively unknown. The collection could also be described as an attempt to explore the depths of what it means to be human, including the irrationality of human nature. In this sense, the works here reflect and convey the diverse range of sensibilities emanating from the megalopolis of Tokyo, transcending the confines of a personal collection in order to present a universal challenge.
