Current Collection Exhibition

Design Collection Ⅳ
"Japanese Traditional Culture and Arts"

February 16 - April 18, 2023

This quarter, in connection with the museum's special exhibition "The Making of Munakata Shiko: Celebrating the 120th Anniversary of the Artist's Birth" [March 18 - May 21, 2023], we will exhibit posters featuring traditional Japanese culture and art.

Motifs including moon and cherry blossoms, which have stimulated Japanese sensibilities since ancient times, and pouting lips against white skin, favored as an ideal of beauty, are dotted throughout the posters as symbols of Japanese culture and art. However, the way in which they are expressed varies by designer. We invite you to stop for a moment on a beautiful spring day and take in the various visual manifestations of traditional Japanese culture and art.
