This event has ended.

Teikoku Art School, which became Musashino Art University, was founded in 1929 by Seigo Kinbara (1888-1958) and his comrades. They described their educational philosophy as “producing sophisticated artists.” This exhibition introduces how, in pursuit of their ideal for art education while grappling with a variety of issues, they built the foundations of this university. Using Kinbara’s diaries and correspondences, together with paintings from his archives, it presents a realistic image of the university’s founding while focusing on relationships among key individuals.
