Collection Highlights & Special Feature: An Inner LandscapeⅠ―Landscapes and Memories

Motoyuki Shitamichi, From Remnants, farmer’s shed, 2001-2005/2012


The exhibition consists of two sections: “Collection Highlights,” and a special feature titled “An Inner Landscape I: Landscapes and Memories.”

Selected from the over 1,600 items housed in the museum, “Collection Highlights” introduces important works that are representative of the collection or display another distinctive feature. In this edition, we focus on English artists, in particular those whose work is related to nature. Meanwhile, in “An Inner Landscape I: Landscape and Memories,” we examine the depiction of landscapes in contemporary art – or be more precise, the way in which artists have captured and expressed landscapes that have been transformed by environmental changes. The exhibit includes a rich variety of works, including paintings depicting the pre-World War II landscape of Hiroshima, the world after the atomic bomb was dropped on the city, and photographs document that changes in the scenery.
