Messages: Takahashi Collection

Sat, Sep 19, 2015 - Mon, Jan 11, 2016


Details

Contemporary art collector and psychiatrist Takahashi Ryutaro has amassed a collection of more than 2,000 items since 1997. “Messages” showcased a wide range of paintings, videos, and sculptural works, including invaluable early works by Kusama Yayoi and works by leading Japanese contemporary artists of the 1990s and 2000s̶a long list that includes Nara Yoshitomo and Murakami Takashi as well as Chim↑Pom, Kasetsu, and teamLab. The exhibition highlighted the diverse messages of these artists, whose works are an acute reflection of our times. A symposium on contemporary art titled “Communicating by Contemporary Art: Art Museums as the New Cultural Base in the City” was also held during the exhibition, leading to animated discussion on contemporary art and the challenges faced by art museums.
