poster for Galleries Without Artworks

Ends in 18 days

Humanity is living through a time of catastrophe, the likes of which have never been experienced.

Not one area of society is untouched by the crisis, and museums around the world are re-examining activities such as exhibitions and asking fundamental questions about what museums ought to be. Various challenges are interfering with preparations for scheduled exhibitions, including difficulties with borrowing works from overseas, and it is impossible to predict what the future may hold.

Under these circumstances, Setagaya Art Museum has decided to address the public frankly and directly with a project titled “Galleries Without Artworks.”

Special Project: “Architecture, Nature, and Performance”
In the more than 30 years since opening, the museum has organized numerous music, dance, and other performing arts events, taking advantage of its unique architectural space and the surrounding natural environment, and at times holding performances in conjunction with art exhibitions on view. Approximately 40 of the nearly 400 performances that have taken place here have been selected and will be presented in the form of photographic slideshows and films documenting the events, as well as leaflets and other archival materials.
