To commemorate the 50th anniversary since Cartier opened its first boutique in Japan, this exhibition introduces various stories connecting the Maison and Japan. Set against the symmetrical structure of Higashiyama-ku, the exhibition unravels two bonds: between Cartier and Japan, and between the Cartier Contemporary Art Foundation and Japanese artists.

Through approximately 200 exhibits, including Cartier's precious archive pieces forming the "Cartier Collection" and archival documents, the exhibition highlights the dialogue between Cartier and Japanese culture. Additionally, it showcases the continuous creative dialogue between the Cartier Contemporary Art Foundation and Japanese artists through the works of 15 representative artists in Japan's art scene.
