Suntory Museum of Art / Celebrating a Decade in Roppongi:Picture Scroll Enthusiasts

MORE INFORMATION

March 29(Wed) - May 14(Sun)

Picture scrolls, or e-maki, which blend literature and painting, are an art form original to Japan. Since the middle ages, they have constantly enthralled us Japanese, and picture scroll enthusiasts, whose passion approached a mania, have emerged over and over again. This exhibition focuses on some of the classic examples, including the retired emperor Go-Shirakawa, Emperor Hanazono, and the aristocrat Sanjonishi Sanetaka. It examines the records they kept of their experiences while appreciating picture scrolls and other documents to reveal how these works were actually enjoyed. By seeking to gain an understanding of these men, powerful patrons as well as enthusiasts, this exhibition will introduce previously unexplored aspects of the context in which picture scrolls were created.

21_21 DESIGN SIGHT Exhibition "ATHLETE"

MORE INFORMATION

February 17(Fri) - June 4(Sun)

"Athletes" are constantly training, and through trial and error, pushing and exceeding their own limits. We believe that the sincere and pure struggle of athletes offers many hidden lessons to people not only in the realm of sports, but in other fields of profession. In this exhibition, in addition to showcasing the bodies of athletes as they perform through video footage and photographs, we explore in interactive exhibits the experience of controlling sensation of body and mind, the latest technologies to analyze data as it relates to tactics, and the sports gear and other equipments that act as an extension of the body. In doing so, the exhibition looks at the diverse elements that make a person an athlete, and decipher them from a design perspective.
