Shiseido Art House
Museum in The Kanto: others area
The Shiseido Art House opened in 1978. A renewal in 2002 boosted its museum functionality, allowing it to amass an excellent collection of modern and contemporary art works which it regularly shows in public exhibitions.
As part of Shiseido's other culture support activities, the core of the Art House's collection consists of works by painters, sculptors, and craftspeople who have previously exhibited at the Shiseido Gallery in Ginza, Tokyo, for example at the Tsubakikai (Camellia Club) Exhibition or the Exhibition of Modern Industrial Art.
The building of the Shiseido Art House was designed through a collaboration between architects Takamiya Shinsuke and Taniguchi Yoshio, and in 1980 it won the AIJ Prize (sponsored by the Architectural Institute of Japan). The artistry of the building itself was recognized again in 2010, when it won the Japan Institute of Architects' 9th JIA 25 Year Prize for “longtime contribution to the local environment, longevity of aesthetics against weathering, and being a structure conveying the significance of architecture to society,” and also for “the people who contributed to cultivating such a beautiful building.”
