This event has ended.

Coal mines made a major contribution to the modernization of the pre-war industries, as well as to Japan's postwar economic revival and high growth. This exhibition attempts to retrace the various issues related to coal mines through an examination of how they were represented in visual culture. An installation by Tadashi Kawamata will be on view, presenting the results of his "Coalmine Tagawa" project.

artscape 学芸員レポート 2/15
by 山口洋三(福岡市美術館)

日本から姿を消しつつある炭鉱において、または炭鉱について、これほど多くの作品が生み出されていたという事実には驚愕させられる。技術的にも造形的にも洗練されているとは言いにくい作品ばかりであるのに、感慨がこみ上げるのはなぜか。企画の勝利である。
