In celebration of the 30th anniversary of the founding of the Kawamura Memorial DIC Museum of Art, this exhibition has been planned as an opportunity to show works from the collection in collaboration with contemporary artists.
As seen in the ceiling lighting and stained glass of the museum’s Entrance Hall, the building adopts a design motif of “overlapping circles” in a number of places. Included in the meaning of this motif is symbolism of the bond of friendship between the museum’s founder Katsumi Kawamura and the architect Ichiro Ebihara, as well as the encounters between museum visitors and the works of art.
As suggested by the title’s reference to this motif, the exhibition offers overlapping experiences of five front-line artists through their encounters with works from the museum’s collection. The interpretations of works from the collection by these contemporary artists inspire new works displayed in installations along with collection pieces.
