Sleeping: Life with Art

10:00–17:00 (Closed Mondays, Dec 28~Jan 1, Jan 12)・Nov 25, 2020–Feb 23, 2021・National Museum of Modern Art Tokyo Kitanomarukoen 3−1, Chiyoda ku, Tokyo

An exploration of the artistic expressions of ‘sleep’ from Goya and Rubens to Chiharu Shiota. Sleep is an essential part of human existence, so unsurprisingly it is the subject of many works of art from various styles and backgrounds. This exhibition at the National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo features around 120 works relating to the theme in a variety of genres including paintings, prints, drawings, photographs and 3D pieces. Can the art created around sleep bring us new perspectives in our waking moments?
