Panasonic Museum of Art "The Spirit of the Connecting Rin School Yukika Kamisaka"

Yukika Kamisaka (1866-1942) was a painter and painter active mainly in Kyoto from the Meiji era to the Showa period. At the dawn of the 20th century, by visiting the most advanced arts and crafts of the time in Europe Japan Yukika was reminded of the splendor of ancient decorative arts and devoted himself to the study of the "Rin school." Through the theme of the "Rin School," this exhibition reveals the essence of the wide-ranging activities of Yuka Kamisaka. The origins of the Rin school date back to the early Edo period. Longing for the elegant beauty of the Heian Dynasty and aiming for its revival, new art has become an extraordinary art trend in the world, from the end of the shogunate to the modern era over time. Among them, the achievements of artists who colored the history of art such Japan as Mitsuetsu Motoami, Munetachi Baleya, Ogata Korin, Ogata Inuiyama, and Sakai Shoichi and Suzuki Keiichi are well known. Yukika Kamisaka, who appeared in Kyoto during the Meiji period, took a keen interest in the art of the Rin school, sympathized not only with their methods of expression but also with their attitude of activity, and put them into practice herself. Because of this way of being, it is also called "Modern Rin School, Kamisaka Yukika". A major feature of Yukika's creative activities is that she provides designs that color her life and has made total coordination of the space. I have worked on a wide range of subjects, from the publication of highly practical design collections, to the design of crafts, the decoration of furnishings, and the production of paintings. In addition to building a style that is also called "The Return of Korin," he also worked hard to promote Kyoto industry and revitalize the craft world. Under the supervision of the Hosomi Museum of Art in Kyoto, which is known for its attractive Rin school collection and has attracted attention and commended Yukika Kamisaka from an early stage, this exhibition will exhibit about 80 works, including paintings, drawings, and crafts, together with masterpieces such as Mitsuetsu Honami and Ogata Mitsurin, who show the beauty of the Rin school modeled by Yukika (some exhibitions will be changed during the exhibition). By fusing classical and modern ideas, you will enjoy the diverse world of "Modern Rin School, Kamisaka Yukika" that freely went back and forth between the two fields of art and design.

Suntory Museum of Art "Treasures of Chishakuin, Kyoto" Exhibition

Chishakuin, located in Higashiyama, Kyoto, is the head temple of the Shingon sect Chizan school, which began with Kobo Daishi Kukai (774~835), and has about 3,000 Sueji temples nationwide. It inherited the legal rule of Kokyo Daishi Awakening (1095~1143), who is said to be the founder of Koyasan Nakaoki, and was founded in the middle of the Muromachi period in the mountain of Neraiji Temple in Kii Province, which later flourished. It declined temporarily under the administration of Toyotomi Hideyoshi during the Tensho period, but after receiving a donation from Tokugawa Ieyasu, it was revived in its current location in the early Edo period. Shounzen Temple, originally built to mourn the bodhi of Hideyoshi's fallen son, Tsurumatsu (Abandoned), was originally located here, and the famous golden blue barrier paintings painted by Count Hasegawa (1539~1610) and his son Kuzo (1568~93) have been carefully protected and handed down to this day under the generous protection of Chishakuin. This exhibition will be the first time that barrier paintings known to everyone, such as the national treasures "Maple Maple" and "Cherry Blossom Drawing," will be exhibited simultaneously outside the temple, and will be a valuable opportunity to experience the gorgeous lyrical beauty of the Momoyama period. In addition to the national treasure "Kongo Sutra" and the important cultural property "Peacock Myeongwang Statue", precious masterpieces of Buddhist art that majesty the Buddhist hall and the "Women's Cafe Map" by Domoto Impression (1891~1975), which represents the modern Kyoto art world, will be exhibited in one place.

21_21 DESIGN SIGHT Exhibition "Christo and Jeanne = Claude "The Wrapped Arc de Triomphe""

In September 2021, when the Arc de Triomphe in Paris was covered with cloth, the surroundings were enveloped in the cheers of the people. It was in Paris, where contemporary artists Christo and Jeanne = Claude met and took a step forward in their creative activities, and it was the moment when the project "LʼArc de Triomphe, Wrapped, Paris, 1961–2021" (Wrapped Arc de Triomphe), which was conceived in 1961 and was also a long-awaited dream, became a reality. 21_21 DESIGN SIGHT will hold a special exhibition "Cristo and Jeanne = Claude "The Wrapped Arc de Triomphe" from June 13, 2022 to February 12, 2023. Over the course of 16 days, the film explores the backdrop and long journey to realization of LʼArc de Triomphe, Wrapped, 25,000 m2 of recyclable blue cloth with a silver coating and 3,000 metres of red rope. Born in separate places on June 13, 1935, the same day of the same year, Christo and Jeanne = Claude met fatefully in Paris in the autumn of 1958 and began their artistic career. He then moved to New York in 1964, where the two realized projects full of surprises around the world. Even after the death of Jeanne = Claude in 2009, Christo continued to work on creating the project they had dreamed of. The "Wrapped Arc de Triomphe" project was one of them. It was originally scheduled to be realized in 2020, but it was postponed due to the spread of the new coronavirus infection, and Christo passed away in May of the same year without seeing the completion. After that, with the cooperation of many supporters, it took 60 years from the conception to realize it in September 2021. This exhibition is organized in cooperation with Vladimir Yavacev and the Christo & Jeanne = Claude Foundation. Using many archival images and videos, the cinematic expression of Pascal LeLan, the director and filmmaker of this exhibition, creates a new experience from the conception to the realization of the "Arch of Triumph Wrapped". A positive and powerful attitude that overcomes various difficulties over a long period of time to realize it. In addition, it is precisely because of the presence of the friends who have gathered under such strong feelings that we can continue to produce works that no one has ever seen before. Christo and Jeanne = Claude's attitude toward the realization of their dreams will give them courage not only in art and design, but also in various everyday challenges.

Mori Art Museum "Roppongi Crossing 2022 Exhibition: Coming and Going Okay!"

"Roppongi Crossing" is a series of exhibitions that have been co-curated by the Mori Art Museum since 2004 as a fixed-point observational exhibition that provides a comprehensive overview of the contemporary art scene in Japan once every three years. In this seventh installment, we will introduce 22 Japan artists born in the 1940s ~ 1990s. This exhibition will be a crossings-in of creative activities, from artists who are already remarkable internationally to up-and-coming young artists who are expected to play an active role in the future. The prolonged coronavirus pandemic has drastically changed our lives, and various events that were previously difficult to see have become apparent in Japan society. I have come to reconsider the familiar things and living environment that I used to accept as a matter of course, and I have become strongly aware of the existence and diversity of neighbors living together in these turbulent times. In the future, as the flow of people recovers and new cultures are expected to develop, it will be necessary to reconsider the fact that various ethnic groups coexist in the current "Japan" and that the history and culture painted in this land are actually already colorful. What kind of future can we imagine and create together? The subtitle "Coming and Going Oh Rai!" expresses the desire to regain the movement of people who have been interrupted by the coronavirus pandemic, while reaffirming the fact that diverse people and cultures coexist in the present Japan after repeated exchanges and exchanges with different cultures throughout history, and after a complicated past. In this context, I would like to reexamine what Japan contemporary art and creation are from a broad perspective and think together with you about tomorrow.
