The first collection exhibition, “Motion in Art – Visual Experiments in Expressing Motion”, will be held from June 2nd to September 22nd at The Hyogo Prefectural Museum of Art as the special feature of the year.
The Hyogo Prefectural Museum of Art, the predecessor of The Hyogo Prefectural Museum of Modern Art (opened in October 1970), has continued to enhance its collections more than 10,000 works so far. This exhibition focuses on various “motion” and their expressions in paintings and sculptures that cannot originally reproduce the movement itself and caught inside the art.
The section that focuses on the “movement of people and animals” introduces sculptures by Edgar Degas and Satoshi Yabuuchi. This section focuses on the “forms and phenomena of nature” that change every moment of the day and season. It introduces works which are creating a unique world. The section that focuses on the “traces of body movement” in paintings with moving brushes and hanging paint introduces Kazuo Shiraga’s works and discusses the physical act of painting.
