An exhibition unites works by contemporary artists with masterpieces of classic Japanese art, “Timeless Conversations 2020: Voices from Japanese Art of the Past and Present” will be held at the National Art Center, Tokyo from June 24th to August 24th, 2020.
This exhibition unites works by contemporary artists working at the forefront of art, photography, design, and architecture with masterpieces of classic Japanese art.
Along with pieces by legendary Edo Period figures such as Enku, Kenzan, Shohaku, Sengai, Hokusai, and outstanding examples of flower-and-bird paintings, swords and Buddhist statuary, the exhibition presents works by eight important contemporary Japanese artists: Rinko Kawauchi, Tomoko Konoike, Shiriagari Kotobuki, Kishio Suga, Koji Tanada, Tsuyoshi Tane, Akira Minagawa, and Tadanori Yokoo.
This integrated approach promises to shed light on artistic and spiritual similarities and affinities concealed within creative work of the ancient and modern era.
