Twentieth Anniversary Special MOT Collection, Chronicle 1995-, at MUSEUM OF CONTEMPORARY ART TOKYO, Kiba Park, Kotoku, Tokyo
7th June - 31st August, 2014 | MUSEUM OF CONTEMPORARY ART TOKYO, Kiba Park, Kotoku, Tokyo
To commemorate the museum's twentieth anniversary in fiscal year 2014, we will hold special exhibitions divided into three stages.
1995, when the Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo first opened its doors, was the year of the Great Hanshin Earthquake and the Aum Tokyo Subway Attack, and it is often pointed out that throughout the years following the collapse of the bubble economy and the ensuing social unease, this year marked a critical juncture in Japan's cultural flow that continues to the present day.
In the field of contemporary art new works are continuously being born, the infrastructure to support them is gradually becoming established and it is possible to look at this year as being a turning point.
The exhibition will be organized in two sections; the first will look at what happened in 1995 using the museum's collect ions and introducing the museum's opening exhibition to further analyze this period of time.
The second section will look at the expression of artists who began their activities subsequent to 1995, introducing a summary of the museum's young artist collection.
Presenting a bird's-eye view starting from 1995, we will trace the museum's twenty years of the activities while presenting a perspective from which to consider the continuing scene.
