  • Pola Museum of Art to Celebrate 20th Anniversary with Exhibition Featuring Monet, Matisse

    16.March.2022 | FASHION / SPOT

    Pola Museum of Art opened in September 2002, its huge collection amassed by the second-generation founder of Pola, Tsuneshi Suzuki (1930-2000), over a period of about 40 years after World War II. The museum has since held various special exhibitions based on this collection–for the 10th anniversary in 2012, the Forest Promenade was opened along with a collection of outdoor sculptures, the opening of a contemporary art gallery, and more hands-on exhibitions. From April 9 until September 6, 2022, the POLA will host an exhibition to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the venue’s opening. This event will focus on new additions to the gallery, including works by Claude Monet, Henri Matisse, and Gerhard Richter.

     

    Water Lilies. Claude Monet, 1907. Oil/Canvas. (93.3 x 89.2 cm)

     

    In planning the exhibition, the theme chosen was ‘light.’ Impressionist painters such as Monet were experts at capturing light, and this is easily seen in Water Lillies.

     

    Expanding the Existing Collection, New Pieces Connect the Modern and Contemporary Periods

    Woman with a Parasol. Robert Delaunay. 1913. Oil/Canvas. (123.5 × 90.3 cm)

     

    While the collection is largely composed of modern Western and Japanese paintings from the 19th and 20th centuries, the new additions include postwar contemporary pieces, with some on display for the first time ever.

     

    The Largest Project in the Museum’s History

    Woman with a Mirror. Fernand Léger. 1920. Oil/Canvas. (55.6 x 38.7 cm)

    Woman Reading by the Window. Vilhelm Hammershøi. 1899. Oil/Canvas. (46.2×51.0 cm)

     

     

    In order to showcase as much of the existing and new collections as possible, the exhibition will be held in five exhibition rooms in the museum, the Atrium Gallery, which was newly established in 2017 to showcase contemporary art, the lobby space, and even the forest promenade. This is the largest event since the opening of the Pola Museum of Art.



    From Impressionism to the Present Day: Works Featuring ‘Light’

    Abstract Painting. Gerhard Richter. 1987. Oil/Canvas. (200.7 × 200.8 cm) © Gerhard Richter 2021(20102021)

     

     

    The exhibition introduces numerous works related to light from the height of the Impressionist movement to the present day. Be sure to visit if you can!

    The Nihonbashi ART AQUARIUM will be closed on September 26 2021 to make way for new exhibits and works. The museum is scheduled to be relocated in the first half of 2022.

     

    The ART AQUARIUM Museum opened in Nihonbashi, Tokyo on August 28 202 with the concept of “a museum where life dwells.” This will be the largest renewal in the history of the museum Museum, opened by writer and general producer Hidetomo Kimura, with the addition of more exhibits and new and improved interactive areas.

     

    The Nihonbashi Art AQUARIUM Museum opened alongside the 2020 Tokyo Olympics and Paralympic, with the expectations that visitors would come from both within Japan and overseas, thanks to the exhibitions which easily explain and represent Japan’s proud traditional culture and performing arts, but due to Covid restrictions, foreign tourists are still unable to enter the country. Despite this, the Museum saw many customers and with the closing of the Olympic and Paralympic Games, the museum will be closed in preparation to relocate to the new ART AQUARIUM. If you want to see the Nihonbashi location for yourself then this is your last chance!

     

    In addition, the “ART AQUARIUM” digital tour is being held from September 12, allowing you to appreciate the Museum in a digital format until the reopening.
