Ends in 61 days

After centuries of isolation during the Edo Period (1603-1868), Japan opened its doors to the world, and aspects of Western culture were introduced to the nation with incredible rapidity, art being among them. From then to now, Japanese artists have explored their own identities, moving back and forth between admiration for the West and alignment with the nation’s own traditions. Some have turned their eyes to the realities of rapidly modernizing Japanese society while creating art that asks questions on a personal level. This exhibition follows the arc of this history, presenting approximately 250 works including eight Important Cultural Properties, with some of the works shown in the first term (May 25-July 18) replaced by others during the second term (July 20-September 26). Also, we invite visitors to enjoy the exhibit in Gallery 4 on the second floor, which explores developments in steel sculpture with David Smith’s Circle IV, purchased in 2017, as a particular highlight.
