Japanese Gallery (Honkan) Room T4 & T5
July 24, 2018 (Tue) - September 9, 2018 (Sun)
Tokyo National Museum will hold the family-oriented program, TNM and Art Tunes! Present: Becoming Japanese Art, to coincide with summer vacation.
This exhibit is like a museum where you can become part of the art! This is a special art museum for people who have fallen in love with art by watching the NHK show Art Tunes! and also for those who want to enjoy art even more. It’s open this summer at the Tokyo National Museum (TNM).
TNM is the oldest and largest museum in Japan. Its collection includes art works that have inspired songs and animations on Art Tunes!
The key to enjoying your time here is, of course, “becoming the art.” By imagining you’re the character in an art work, or the artist who created it, you can make art even more fun. Here, through reproductions and videos, you can “become” five art works that have been featured on Art Tunes!
After having fun with the art, why not go check out the actual works? This is a rare chance to encounter some of the works featured on Art Tunes!
