Event contents

ten where, in fact, hard core of contemporary art is world treasure

Approximately 40 writers, approximately 75 points of works are displayed at this exhibition. Artist is ball (SANYU) that it is usual, Francis Bacon, zao Woo key, Andy Warhol, Cy Twombly, Gerhard Richter, Hiroshi Sugimoto, **kyo, Ron myueku, Peter doigu, challenger of contemporary art including mark Quinn (age order); the core (hard core!) Only as for the person who can say this. Tiptopper does work.

It is work of contemporary art that is apt to be often told "to seem to be able to prepare into oneself", "hard to please", but, in fact, as shown in title, this exhibition is going to say that it may be "world treasure" in two meanings at least.

As for one, it is "world treasure" for of market price or insurance valuation. We may attach amount of money of several billions of yen unit even to work of living artist at auction now so that it is occasionally reported. Some such works begin book exhibition.

It is "world treasure" in history of art-like meaning one more. Superior artist is person who is going to express what you should convey in form that there is not of fading in the future with history of past art in mind now. Even if we were able to see their work slightly funnily, it is not unrelated to us who live in now. And it is thing which we endure trial of the times and are going to continue being about to accuse while various expression overflows in the world. Therefore after all they may say that they are an irreplaceable person for "the world".
By book exhibition, we divide "hard core of contemporary art" which is such a "world treasure" into ten chapters while using keyword such as the "Muses" "sublimity" "memory" "new beauty" and display.

By the way, "exhibition by collection" as for "the masterpiece exhibition without theme…There will be surely "and thinking person. But, at two points, book exhibition is something. At first it is point challenging that we express continuity in history of art. Did it this way, in a sense is because natural exhibition is Japan until now, and there is not connection with collector, and profitability is doubtful, and it was not possible not to have been seen. We realized full-scale cooperation of yageo foundation this time by having been provided. And another one point is point that prepares device that "exhibition by collection" dakarakosono is interactive. We offer slight "game" that can relive sense of collector. This exhibition does not look at masterpiece simply, and it is with "value" of work in place thinking about something. In this country (probably) exhibition almost the first and probably the last without passing over!
