Exhibition Schedule 2024

The National Art Center, Tokyo (NACT) is planning a number of exhibitions in 2024.

Universal / Remote, a group exhibition conceived during the COVID-19 pandemic, was aptly organized through remote meetings due to the constraints of the time. This ambitious show explores various aspects of our digital society, revealing hidden realities and disrupted worldviews lurking beneath the convenience of remote connectivity without face-to-face engagement.

Meanwhile, our series of compelling solo exhibitions continues. Henri Matisse – Forms in Freedom, initially planned for 2021 and postponed due to the pandemic, will finally open. Visitors are invited to immerse themselves in the vivid world of Matisse’s paper cut-outs, including the magnum opus Flowers and Fruit, which will be shown in Japan for the first time.

We are also delighted to announce an exhibition celebrating the 35th anniversary of the debut of CLAMP, a group of four women who have achieved great popularity in Japan and abroad, primarily for their contributions to manga.

Keiichi Tanaami, known for his prolific and diverse practice spanning video, painting, sculpture, and design, turns 88 this year, and we will have the honor of hosting his first retrospective. Also, we will present a unique exhibition of the work of Ei Arakawa-Nash, a performance artist highly active overseas, in conjunction with multiple painters. Incorporating performance into the venue, the show will emphasize collaboration among disparate creators, transforming the audience’s relationship with painting.
