Event contents

By picture and work of MOMAT collection which 12 painters recited about own work, we ask possibility of modern painting.

We held "artist talk" to have artist playing an active part talk about own work in front of work displayed by collection exhibition in National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo since 2005. This event counts 30 times so far. In the first place it was event begun expecting being introduced that it is easy to get close to to contact with modern work, but it is talked about clearly having been thinking by fact, each talk at previous step of author and time, and it is at valuable opportunity in deepening understanding. And, as for the picture which recorded these talks, it must be given historic testimony in the long run.
By this display, we focus on picture in particular from talk of conventional various fields and we put digest picture of talk and approximately 40 points of works of this hotel collection together and introduce. Each appearing painters hangs in the 80s from the end of 1970s and begins announcement, but it right hits at difficult time when we received the back of trend that is going to question the way of conventional art such as minimal art and conceptual art strictly. Expression was cut down to the maximum, and, from the "seeing" situation that had to catch that "we made" from the origin again, how did they regain rich possibility of picture? Result of pursuit of such a problem will be what we can take in from their talk and work.
