"Collaborative Exhibition Project between the Tokyo National Museum and the Philadelphia Museum of Art: Marcel Duchamp and Japanese Art"

Heiseikan Special Exhibition Gallery 1 & 2  October 2, 2018 (Tue) - December 9, 2018 (Sun)

  

This exhibition traces the creative activities of Marcel Duchamp (1887–1968) ― a French artist who drastically challenged the values of Western art ― mainly through works in the collection of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Featuring Duchamp’s works alongside Japanese art for comparison, the exhibition will also explore the meaning of this Japanese art, which was nurtured in social environments that differed from those of the West, as well as the aesthetic values it embodies, proposing new ways of enjoying its beauty.
