The Museum of Modern Art, Wakayama

poster for Summer Exhibition: Be Alive!

This event has ended.

Though living things can be seen in a zoo or an aquarium, an art museum does not usually display living things. However there is a definite sense of life in artwork. This exhibition considers what it is to “be alive” from 4 points of view.
The first is to use a living person as the subject. The second is to express life through various living things. The third is to look at human attitudes when faced with the inevitables of life, such as birth, aging, sickness, and death. And lastly, the fourth is to observe forms and colors which make one feel alive.
