For a good portion of 2016, Nara Yoshimoto is curating the current collection going on at the MOMAT in Ueno. He studied art religiously up and down Japan, and even lived abroad to study art in Germany. Today, he travels around Asia, showcasing his collections at various exhibitions.
Yoshimoto has chosen predominantly Japanese artists for this collection at the MOMAT, reflecting on landscapes and people primarily, with a few international influences. His commentary and rationale for choosing each piece is an integral part of the exhibition. The subdued, modern, humble choices he makes are combining to create a way to show how he sees life. Most pieces are dated between 1910 and 1960.
