At this exhibition, we will be showcasing an installation made of salt, along with two large-scale flat artworks, including a gold folding screen. In addition, in our museum shop, we plan to sell original items such as T-shirts and skateboards, which feature the exhibited works as their design motif.

This exhibition pays renewed attention to the myriad practices of diverse artists who are pursuing the present and future of “Nihonga” (Japanese-style painting). It spotlights the methods of expression used by painters who led the “Nihonga” of the modern era, from the Meiji, Taisho, and early Showa periods, and by post-war Japanese painters including Ney Sugiyama. The exhibition aims to delve into the essence of their work.
