MOT Collection "Walking, Traveling, Moving―From the Great Kanto Earthquake to the Present / Eye to Eye"

The first-floor section of this exhibition, “Walking, Traveling, Moving: From the Great Kanto Earthquake to the Present,” comprises a variety of works, from sketches drawn by KANOKOGI Takeshiro on a visit to Tokyo immediately after the 1923 Great Kanto Earthquake to document the devastated city, to works by Olafur ELIASSON produced for his solo exhibition at MOT in 2020, when restrictions on “moving” were in place due to the COVID-19 pandemic. FUJIMAKI Yoshio’s masterpiece Scenes from the Sumidagawa River (1934) will also be on display, along with newly acquired works by KUSANAGI Shinpei, MITSUSHIMA Takayuki, and Wataridori Keikaku [ASO Tomoko, TAKEUCHI Akiko] created for the “MOT Satellite” exhibitions. We hope that by tracing the footsteps of artists from different eras and countries, the works shown here will serve to enhance our perspective on the world, and the society in which we live. / The third floor, under the title “Eye to Eye,” focuses on different types of gaze, presenting the “painted gaze” in the works of artists including Alex KATZ, Roy LICHTENSTEIN, NAKAMURA Hiroshi and NAKAZONO Koji, and “involving gaze” in, for example, the sculptures and reliefs of TADA Minami and Monir Shahroudy FARMANFARMAIAN using reflective materials. This section also covers a plethora of techniques, with a special emphasis on looking and seeing, including the “camera eye” of MATSUE Taiji capturing the workings of cities and nature around the world; and “critical gaze” directed on minute landscape details by the video work of Maya WATANABE.
