Minimal/Conceptual: Dorothee and Konrad Fischer and the Art Scenes in the 1960s and 1970s

Mar. 26 (Sat.) – May 29 (Sun.)

Minimal art is an artistic trend characterized by works made up of simple geometric shapes. It was followed by conceptual art, which focuses more on the product’s concept rather than the product itself. This exhibition looks back on the art scenes of the 1960s and 70s when these trends came into place, with a focus on the works formerly owned by Mr. and Mrs. Fischer, who pioneered the introduction of minimal and conceptual artworks at their own gallery.

Kansai Contemporary Art of the 1980s

Jun. 18 (Sat.) – Aug. 21 (Sun.)

In the 1980s, Japan turned away from the previous trend of ascetic contemporary art, and a variety of expressions blossomed against the backdrop of the economic bubble and wave of postmodernism. In particular, in the Kansai region, young artists emerged through opportunities such as a series of exhibitions at the Hyogo Prefectural Museum of Modern Art called “Art Now” and attracted attention as the “Kansai New Wave.” This exhibition introduces works that are still fresh and rooted in the reality of each creator.

The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, boasts one of the world’s finest Japanese art collections.

In addition, to introduce the world of samurai paintings in a more comprehensible manner, swords and ukiyo-e from collections in Japan will also be specially displayed.

Lee Ufan

Dec. 13 (Tue.), 2022 – Feb. 12 (Sun.), 2023

This is a major retrospective exhibition dedicated to Lee Ufan (1936– ), a leading artist of one of the most important art trends in postwar Japan, Mono-ha (lit. “School of Things”). It covers his early works from the late 1960s to his latest works showcasing a whole new scope of art. As Lee has mainly exhibited overseas since the beginning of the 2000s, this will be his long-awaited full-scale solo exhibition in Japan since 2005.

Dinosaur Dreams:Imagination and Creation of the Lost World

Mar. 4 (Sat.) – May 14 (Sun.), 2023

Dinosaurs have always fascinated many people from children to adults. This exhibition overviews the changes in the portrayal of dinosaurs and other ancient creatures: from bizarre reconstructions of the 19th century (when dinosaurs were said to be discovered) to vivid dynamic dinosaur paintings of the 20th century by Charles R. Knight and Zdeněk Burian to today’s paleo-art based on cutting-edge research.

TABI/TRIP/TRAVEL/JOURNEY

Jan. 22 (Sat.) – Jul. 3 (Sun.)
* Closed from Apr. 11 (Mon.) to 22 (Fri.) due to exhibition changes

We came up with the idea of having visitors feel like they are on a “trip” at the museum. If going on a trip means leaving your everyday life and going somewhere away from where you are now, then how you feel and how you spend your time during a trip is similar to the experiences in a museum. This exhibition will present works selected with the image of a “trip within the museum” and a “journey through the artworks” in mind. The Permanent Exhibition Gallery 5, where the sculptures are usually displayed, and part of the Koiso Ryohei and Kanayama Heizo Memorial Rooms will also be used.

Motonaga Sadamasa (1922–2011, born in Mie Prefecture) is known worldwide as a leading artist of the Gutai Art Association. This exhibition, held on the 100th anniversary of his birth, focuses on the period when he relocated from Iga to Kobe and then to New York and introduces his works from the perspective of “a relocation is like a journey.” Displays include representative works from his early years as well as other works that had been rarely introduced before.
