‘TRIALOGUE: 20th Century Western Art from the Collections of the Yokohama Museum of Art, Aichi Prefectural Museum of Art, and Toyama Prefectural Museum of Art and Design’ is being held at the Yokohama Museum of Art until Sunday 28th February next year.
The gems of 20th century Western art that can be seen in Japan have been brought together in Yokohama.
The exhibition features approximately 120 paintings and other selected works from the esteemed Western art collections of three public art museums, which represent their respective regions. The works are by 20th century masters such as Picasso, Klee, Miró, Ernst, Dalí, Magritte, Pollock, Bacon, Warhol, and Richter.
With displays comparing pieces from the three collections by specific artists, the exhibition is interwoven with features that are uniquely suited to a cooperative project of this type while also tracing the trajectory of art from the 20th century, which was marked by a series of innovations in expressive technique and concept.
Visitors will enjoy savoring the essence of European and American modern and contemporary art through the exhibition’s three competing collections.
At the same time, they will have the opportunity to follow the path of Japanese museums as they vied to expand their acquisitions, and reaffirm the rich assets that Japan amassed as a result.
Following this exhibition, from March 2021, the Yokohama Museum of Art will close for over two years to undergo a large-scale renovation, so please don’t miss this chance to visit.
All visitors to the exhibition must pre-book a date and time. For details, please check the website.
