[2022 Fall] Collection Room Special Display: Body, Decoration, and Humorous
Venue [ Main Building（South Wing）1F ]
The Museum Collection currently consists of approximately 4,000 works of Kyoto modern art comprising Japanese paintings, Western-style paintings, sculpture, prints, crafts, and calligraphy. In particular, the Collection includes masterpieces representative of Japanese painting made by Kyoto artists between the Meiji and Showa periods, making it one of the leading collections of such works in Japan.
Can we see our entire “body” at one time? This would be difficult if we include invisible parts such as the inside of the body. There is a notion that humans form a single image of their physical frame by connecting the parts of the “body” that we perceive in fragments. In this exhibition, our newly acquired works by Onagi Yoichi, who has created parts of the “body” in vivid colors and on bold scales, Fukuda Miran’s Who’s Sleeve (2015) and other works will be introduced. Through these artworks, the “body” that we so casually interact with in our daily lives will be reconsidered.
