Exhibition Schedule 2023

The National Art Center, Tokyo (NACT) is planning a number of exhibitions focusing on positive themes over the coming year. First, starting from March 1, we present Painting Love in the Louvre Collections followed in July by LIGHT: Works from the Tate Collection, an exhibition that deals with the theme of light. Next, in September, we showcase a retrospective of work by Yves Saint Laurent, a designer who incorporated men’s styles into female attire, introduced the first women’s pants suits in the 1960s, and revolutionized women’s fashion.

At this point, we are also pleased to announce two additional exhibitions. The first, Cai Guo-Qiang: Ramble in the Cosmos – From Primeval Fireball Onward opens in June. The exhibition, which begins with an important early work by the Chinese-born internationally active artist Cai Guo-Qiang that he conceived while living in Japan, deals with themes such as the cosmos and the invisible world. Then, in November, we are set to present a major solo exhibition by Shinji Ohmaki, an artist who has consistently questioned the nature of “existence” in large-scale installations that focus on time and space.

Underlying all of these exhibitions is a message rooted in beauty, tolerance, hope, change, challenge, diversity, a boundary-crossing perspective, and the cosmos.
