This year, in commemoration of its 25th anniversary, the Toyota Municipal Museum of Art is holding an exhibition titled "VISION" throughout the year. This term's common title is "DISTANCE. What You Can See Now". The two themes will be exhibited throughout the museum's collection. This is a project to rediscover the charm of the museum's collection by using all the exhibition rooms.
The first half, "Twenty-Five Years of Toyota Municipal Museum of Art. Exhibition Posters and Collection" features works by Gustav Klimt, Surrealists, Giuseppe Penone, Nara Yoshitomo, and other key figures in various movements, and looks back on the museum's attempts to encounter artworks from various perspectives by tracing back over seventy posters from exhibitions to date.
The second half of the exhibition, "A Feast for Distance. A Sense of Perspective in the Collection" focuses on the theme of "DISTANCE". The museum's collection is rich in works that evoke distance, such as paintings by Miran Fukuda that lightly shift the viewer's sense of perspective, Alberto Giacometti's busts that bring distance into sculpture, and Isamu Wakabayashi's sculptures that question how to understand space-time. These works unravel our sense of distance and make us rethink the pleasure of gazing into the distance and the near.
