21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa’s 15th anniversary exhibition “Where We Now Stand — In Order to Map the Future[2]” will be held from February 4th to April 12th, 2020.

Now in their 15th anniversary year, the museum’s collection stands at 3,880 artworks—an achievement of the two decades since collecting began in 2000, prior to the museum’s opening. In those two decades, society has changed radically, a phenomenon the collection strongly reflects in its growing number of artworks sharply attuned to their times.

This exhibition will reinterpret the collected works from the perspective of today’s issues so as to form a picture of where we now stand, in a complexly diversifying world, and begin sketching out a map of the future.

Artists: Yuken Teruya, Takashi Homma, Walter Niedermayr, Minako Nishiyama, Thomas Ruff, Benandsebastian, Shilpa Gupta, Futoshi Miyagi, Yuko Mohri, Chiharu Shiota, El Anatui, Motohiko Odani, Jan Fabre, Kimpei Nakamura, Kohei Nakamura, Yukio Nakagawa, Yoshihiro Suda etc.
