This event has ended.

Ueno, known for its many art institutions, including the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum and Tokyo University of the Arts, has a long history as an art mecca that has fostered many important artists. Among those institutions, the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum - ”the home of the public entry exhibition” - has fulfilled a significant role by giving artists of all kinds a place to exhibit and develop their practice. Now, to build on that history and foster new potential for the future, the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum will launch the “Ueno Artist Project,” an exhibition series featuring contemporary artists who are currently active in art groups, under a fixed theme each time. Part one of the series takes the theme, “Contemporary Realism - Transcending Photography and Video.” The exhibition will feature nine artists who pursue a “contemporary real ism” that is only possible in paintings.
