The National Museum of Art, Okutama, opened in 2012. In the two years since, it has been subjected to rain, wind, and last year’s heavy snow. But with the opening of The National Museum of Art, Okutama: 13-Day Premium Drift, its fortunes seem to have been revived.
Contemporary Japan, we believe, is, like the weather of the last two years, in the middle of harsh drift and its people seem to be carried along and battered by forces greater and beyond anyones intentions. In a sense, we Japanese are just drifting.
Our exhibition features 13 artists who, with joy and determination, show how they are steering through the contemporary torrent. The exhibition is held for only 13 days at The National Museum of Art, Okutama, located in the mountains remote from the city. We are looking forward to your visit.
Featured artists: AKAISHI Takaaki, USHIJIMA Tatsuji,KOTAKA Takuro, COYO Chihiro, Colliu, SEKINO Yoshiharu, TAKEDA Ryu, NAGAHATA Tomohiro, NIJYUNI-KAI, MATSUO Kanta, YAMAMOTO Atsushi, WADA Masahiro
The National Museum of Art, Okutama:
The National Museum of Art, Okutama, would like to establish a showcase where “making art” and “presenting works”, that cannot be ignored by those engaged in manufacturing. We are interested in exploring the possibilities for changing the future through the interaction between artists and viewers. We endeavor to make this museum a simple space where artists and viewers can discover the countless unknown possibilities that this world allows through direct contact.
