The expression of the human body in Japanese painting has changed greatly since the Meiji period (1968-1912) due to encounters with Western art, and it is paintings that depict women that have transformed most dramatically. This exhibition will present around 30 paintings of women produced during the Meiji era and thereafter. They are divided across three themes: “form,” which focuses on the beauty of women’s bodies, “reality,” where the aim of the painter appears to be the depiction of actual women, and “dream,” where idealistic expressions of imaginary woman dominate. Venue: Exhibition Space 1 & 2, Nakamuraya Salon Museum of Art [Related Events] Gallery Talk by the Curator Event Date: Nov. 11 (Sat) 14:00- (duration approx. 50 mins.) Venue: Nakamuraya Salon Museum of Art Capacity: 15 Admission: Free (Exhibition admission ticket required) *Please see the official website for further details. *Event in Japanese.

Korean abstract painting is a genre unique to Korea, absorbing new approaches to abstract painting that emerged in the West during the 1950s while embodying the spirit of the East. In particular, the Dansaekhwa (monochrome painting) movement born in 1970s Korea was a significant development on a par with the Mono-ha and Gutai movements in Japan. Dansaekhwa was the subject of a major exhibition in Venice in 2015, and international appreciation of this movement is growing rapidly, as demonstrated by increasingly high auction prices around the world. Korean abstract art is one of the core themes in Tokyo Opera City Art Gallery’s Terada Collection. The gallery has received donations of such paintings from collector Kotaro Terada since its establishment, and now holds one of the most substantial collections in Japan. Inspired by the recent popularity of Korean abstract painting, the gallery has put together an exhibition based on its collection and augmented by works on loan from other collectors. The exhibition provides a comprehensive look at these paintings, revealing their rich combination of tranquility and liveliness.

Denmark is the Northern European country that produced Andersen’s fairy tales, Lego, and other items well-known even in Japan. Approximately 5.7 million people live in this small country, which is about the size of Kyushu and known as the happiest country in the world. Denmark is also a design powerhouse that continues to turn out great numbers of design masters, even within the Northern European design boom of recent years. In particular, in the so called mid-Century period following World War II - the golden age in the history of design - Danish designers such as Arne Jacobsen, Hans Wegner and Finn Juhl produced a large number of outstanding items. These objects’ simple beauty, combined with high quality unpinned by functionality and technological strength, has been a major characteristic of Danish design up to the present day. They reveal Denmark’s approach as a welfare state, an approach that advocates everyone having a good quality, comfortable home. Drawing on academic cooperation from Denmark’s Designmuseum Danmark, this exhibition focuses on the appeal of Danish design by presenting furniture, tableware, light fittings, daily necessities and other items from the latter half of the 19th Century, through the mid-Century period to the present day, under one roof.

After encountering a piano in a high school in Natori, Miyagi Prefecture devastated by the tsunami following the Great East Japan Earthquake in 2011, Sakamoto sensed that the forces of nature had retransformed this representative modern musical instrument into a mere object, and from there attempts to retrieve the music by creating occasions for experiencing music in other ways than perceiving physical sounds.
