The Central Hall, formerly the Main Building’s main large exhibition room, has been transformed by the renewal into a freely accessible public space. Kito Kengo’s untitled (hula-hoop) will welcome visitors in a celebration of the new space with a configuration of a large number of plastic hula-hoops suspended from the room’s 16m high ceiling. The flood of rich colors of the intricately intersecting hula-hoops in the dynamic light-filled space symbolizes the unprecedented new atmosphere of The Kyoto City KYOCERA Museum of Art.
