Current Collection Exhibition

TAD Collection Ⅰ

May 20 - August 3, 2021

Introducing highlights from 20th-century artwork following five themes: “Form of Repetition,” “Mountains and Valleys,” “Human and Scenery,” “Human Figure,” and “Stroke” (27 pieces on display).

With “Form of Repetition,” we follow the reoccurring shapes found in works such as Toeko Tatsuno’s 《UNTITLED 95-6》, a stately, organic piece showing pipe-like forms that are full of holes radiating color, or Yukihisa Isobe’s 《Work 65》, which features relief objects in the shape of badges. “Mountains and Valleys” presents famous Japanese paintings, such as Yasushi Sugiyama’s 《Skyline》 and Yuki Somei’s 《Light of Hollow》, as well as Hisao Suzuki’s 3D iron sculpture, 《660 above the sea》 and 《Mikuriga Pond》, an oil painting by Gyoji Nomiyama. Come enjoy natural scenery as expressed through these and other works. In “Human and Scenery,” in addition to famous works by Pablo Picasso and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, visitors can also see pieces depicting figures and landscapes from Japanese artists of the early modern period, such as Chimei Hamada’s woodblock prints and sculpture. With “Human Figure,” visitors can enjoy feeling life as it radiates from the bodies that are depicted in pieces like Léonard Foujita’s 《Two Nudes》 and Fernand Léger’s tapestry work, 《L'anniversaire》. In “Strokes,” please come see lively abstract expressions that can be found in paintings, such as splashes caused by the swinging of arms and energetic brushstrokes.
