Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum Walls & Bridges Exhibition

Walls & Bridges at Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum

09:30–17:30 (Closed on Mondays and Sep 21 (Open Mondays of July 26; Aug 2, 9 and 30; Sep 20))・Jul 22, 2021–Oct 09, 2021・Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum Uenokoen 8-36, Taito-ku

The curation design of Walls & Bridges, upcoming at Ueno’s Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum, is itself unique. The exhibition brings together five artists of various backgrounds, who worked in a number of media from film and photo to sculpture to painting. Indeed, biographically, these artists have little in common – ranging from a watercolorist and former lumberjack from Oita, to a Czech sculptor who once was imprisoned in a concentration camp – but they all are said to transform their personal barriers, or “walls,” into opportunities for expression, of course “bridges,” that sustain their particular creative vision.
