The National Museum of Art, Osaka 100 years of contemporary art


At Oita Prefectural Art Museum

At the beginning of the 20th century, the world of art changed dramatically. Works that overturn common sense appear one after another, and the views and values ​​of art are greatly shaken.

This exhibition begins with masters such as Paul Cezanne, who had a great influence on paintings in the 20th century, and Marcel Duchan, who is also known as the father of contemporary art, and pop art flagman Andy Warhol, a contemporary writer representing Japan. From Yayoi Kusama, Yasumasa Morimura, and Yoshitomo Nara, we will trace the trends of art to date with about 70 masterpieces of domestic and foreign artists in the collection of the National Museum of International Art. Whether you are a “love of contemporary art” or “what is contemporary art?”, Why not embark on an exciting and comfortable journey through 100 years of art?
