Hyogo Art Museum 50th Anniversary
Beyond Mei-Him: Masterpieces of Japanese Modern Art, 1870s-1970s

Jun. 2 (Tue.) – Jun. 7 (Sun.)

Hyogo Prefectural Museum of Modern Art, the predecessor of Hyogo Prefectural Museum of Art, was established in October 1970 (the name was changed at the time of relocation to the current place in 2002). In commemoration of its 50th anniversary in 2020, the museum planned this exhibition as a sequel to exhibitions of masterpieces that have been held in previous milestone years. With a focus on how evaluations change over time and how we and the masterpieces are interrelated, approximately 100 pieces from the museum’s collection as well as items borrowed from major museums will be on display.

This is a first-ever-held-in-Japan solo exhibition of Manuel Franquelo (1953– ), a Madrid-based artist born in Malaga, Spain. He studied painting in the 1970s, but now he expresses himself using various media including photo and installation. As an artist tirelessly pursuing and embodying the ultimate reality, he refers to his own creative activities as “the cartography of the reality.” His works contain a yet-to-be-known outlook of the world that cannot be simply represented by the word “realism.” This exhibition showcases approximately 60 pieces that are on display for the first time in Japan.
