Trio: Modern Art Collections from Paris, Tokyo and OsakaExhibition organized with the collaboration of the Musée d’Art Moderne de Paris, Paris Musées
Paris, Tokyo, and Osaka: collections from three museums in these cities, each of which has nurtured its own unique culture, will come together. The Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris on the banks of the Seine River, the National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo near the Imperial Palace, and the Nakanoshima Museum of Art, Osaka on the central island of Osaka City, have all built rich collections of modern art as museums in major cities. This exhibition is an unprecedented and unique experiment in which works from the collections of the three museums that have something in common are selected to form a number of trios. The commonalities among the works included in each of the freely conceived trios are various, including subject matters, motifs, colors and shapes, materials, and the context in which the works were created, regardless of the era, school, or Eastern/Western backgrounds. The exhibition consists of 34 trios of more than 150 works, including paintings, sculptures, prints, drawings, photographs, designs, and videos by 110 artists, presented in seven chapters according to themes and concepts to propose a new way of viewing modern art from the early 20th century to the present day and to highlight its appeal.
