Ends in 3 days

Over the years, the museum has held many exhibitions that introduce the permanent collection through various themes. “TOP Collection: Scrolling Through Heisei” is a year-long exhibition in which a single theme is carried through three parts in series. The theme of this year’s series - the first since the museum re-opened - is “Heisei.” It is now ten years since this museum held the well-received permanent collection exhibition “Showa: Photography 1945-1989,” and as the Showa era (1926-1989) recedes into the distance, we already find ourselves more than a quarter-century into the current Heisei era (1989-). Reflecting on the span of the 1990s, 2000s, and 2010s, we might ask ourselves how artists related to their age and their society, and what forms their works took. Looking at photography through the theme of Heisei, is it possible to find something “Heisei-like”? This exhibition introduces contemporary Japanese photographic works selected from among the more than 34,000 items in the museum’s collection.
