An introduction to the work of Japanese avant-garde artists from the museum collection

For some time, Itabashi Art Museum has collected and exhibited the work of Japan’s avant-garde artists. Among them, this exhibition looks at artists such as Masaaki Terada and Chozaburo Inoue, who moved to Itabashi after a period living in the artistic community of Ikebukuro Montparnasse. Both maintained their avant-garde spirit from the early Showa period, continuing to paint in that style even after the war. This is also the first exhibition to feature pieces by Toshiyuki Hasekawa, Hideo Noda and Saburō Asō purchased in 2017, as well as works recently donated to the museum. The event will show off the best the museum has to offer in this, the year of its reopening, and the 40th year since its founding.
