Toyama Prefectural Museum of Art and Design 5th Anniversary: DESIGN SCOPE

December 10, 2022 - March 5, 2023

The telescope, used to observe faraway stars, and the microscope, used to study microorganisms and cellular material. Through the use of various instruments which utilize lenses, humanity has expanded the scope of their perceptible world, and given rise to new technologies and values.

In this exhibition, we have named this perspective, filtered through the lens of "design," to be "design-scope." It offers an overarching micro/macro perspective, built through an accumulation of conversations with prolific designers and artists who have achieved wide success on the front lines of their industries, and puts forth what possibilities future designs can propose, as well as how design and art exceedingly proximate current conditions. And through artworks newly created for this exhibition, as well as displays which utilize sound and visuals to offer entire environments to enjoy, this is an experience that encapsulates the creative energies within design and art, filled with joy and surprise, and the possibilities directed toward future generations, launched from this land here, in Toyama.
