The National Art Center, Tokyo is pleased to announce the NACT View series, a project utilizing the Center’s public area that will be newly launched in 2022. The space, while spectacular in impact, is elaborately designed down to the smallest detail by architect Kurokawa Kisho. Emerging and mid-career artists, designers, architects, and filmmakers will be invited to present a variety of contemporary works in the space, which resembles a public plaza where many visitors pass through or linger and enjoy leisure time. The first edition features contemporary artist Tamayama Takuro, whose installation will generate an alien landscape in the familiar space.

Museum Static Lights:The National Art Center, Tokyo

For this exhibition, Tamayama Takuro made a work that was inspired by the concrete cones in the entrance lobby of the National Art Center, Tokyo. Tamayamaʼs fluorescent objects, representing the two 16-meter-high, 8-meter-high cones in the center of the building, are installed on both sides of the lobby, making it seem as if the cones are acting in concert with each other. During the daytime, the objects are penetrated by bright outside light, and as they exert their presence by emitting light around dusk, your impression of them is likely to differ greatly depending on the time of your visit. You can also catch a glimpse of the fluorescent light that permeates the lobby from outside the building. Tamayamaʼs work creates a new landscape around the Center.

What Is NACT View?

NACT View is a new series of small projects made by young to mid-career creators working in a variety of genres, such as fine art, design, architecture, and film, that are presented in the Centerʼs public spaces. The name of the series is made up of the English acronym for the National Art Center, Tokyo, and the word “view,” whose meanings include “gaze,” “landscape,” “viewpoint,” and “way of thinking.” The Centerʼs public spaces are places that are accessed by a wide range of people, including not only visitors to the exhibitions, but also patrons of the facilityʼs café, restaurant, and library as well as those who are merely pass through the building. By displaying works in these spaces, NACT View strives to give all of the facilityʼs visitors an opportunity to become more familiar with contemporary expressions in a casual manner. Plans are also underway to hold related workshops and talk events related to the series.
