FUJIFILM SQUARE Photo History Museum Pictorialism – Prelude to Modern Photography

MORE INFORMATION

February 3(Tue) - April 30(Thu)

Pictorialism was a movement that took the world of photography by storm in the latter years of the 19th century. Until the emergence of Pictorialism,photographs were seen merely as a record of reality, and were not deemed worthy of recognition as a form of artistic expression. In response to this, a movement sprang up that sought to project an emotional intent into the viewer's realm of imagination, and have photography acknowledged as a true art form.

21_21 DESIGN SIGHT Exhibition “Measuring: This much, That much, How much?”

MORE INFORMATION

February 20(Fri) - May 31(Sun)

Humankind has devised conceptual tools that make it possible to measure, convey information about, and manipulate all things in the natural environment that are difficult to manage as they are-tangible things, air, water, light, sound. Those tools are units. This exhibition aims to illustrate the types of units that are used to measure a great variety of things and phenomenon, and to give them a sense of familiarity that they may not already have. The world is more fun when you know how to play with units. And when you are familiar with units, design becomes much more interesting. By showing aspects of the world through the filter of units, this exhibition will hopefully change the way people view everyday things that they normally do not give a second thought to, and lead to new discoveries and sparks of creativity.
