The Window: A Journey of Art and Architecture through Windows
Windows are all too familiar to everyone. They let light and wind in the room while protecting us from coldness and heat. Through them we can have a fresh view of the outside world while indoors.
This exhibition, organized jointly with the Window Research Institute that advocate “windowology,” focuses on windows from various viewpoints. In addition to Henri Matisse’s paintings and cutting-edge contemporary art, the contents will include non-art topics such as the global history of windows. The galleries will showcase cross-genre exhibits including scenes by window loved and painted by artists, and useful tips about windows.
We hope we can offer an experience that enables you to see familiar windows differently after you leave the galleries.
