The Window: A Journey of Art and Architecture through Windows 窓展:窓をめぐるアートと建築の旅

The National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo, 3-1 Kitanomaru-koen, Chiyoda City, Tokyo

A look at art and history via the theme of “windows”

This exhibition takes “windows” as its theme. Windows are a part of our lives that we take for granted. They let light and air into our indoor spaces, while protecting us from cold and heat. This event, a joint project with the Window Research Institute - a foundation that studies windows - features artworks by painters such as Henri Matisse, but also breaks free of the framework of art, looking at the history of windows in the world, and approaching the subject matter from a variety of angles. From window scenes fondly depicted by artists to knowledge about windows that can be applied to everyday life, this event will allow visitors to understand the unique charms of windows, and how they intersect genres.
