Like an Island Afloat on the Water—Twenty Years at Gunma Museum of Art, Tatebayashi

Gunma Museum of Art, Tatebayashi stands close to Tatara-numa, a marsh designated as Japan Heritage in recent years, and is surrounded by rice paddies and swamps. Designed as “an ‘island’ emerging from the ‘surface of the water,’” the landscape integrates the surrounding nature, too. As we reach the twentieth anniversary of the opening of our museum, looking back at the history of our acquisitions, the features of Gunma Museum of Art, Tatebayashi are brought to the fore through the works in our collection.

NOGUCHI TETSUYA—THIS IS NOT A SAMURAI

Noguchi Tetsuya is a contemporary artist who questions contemporariness and humanity with armor and human beings as his themes. His figures exquisitely enwrapped in armor could be a man at the prime of life asleep and propping himself on his elbow or a youth wearing brand-name shoes. We feel as if we are peeking into a fragment of a global milieu. In this exhibition, a world overflowing with the artist’s curiosity about human beings is introduced through approximately 180 representative examples dating from early on in his career to new works.

Tatebi Report—Celebrating the 20th Anniversary of Our Opening

Commemorating the twentieth anniversary of the opening of Tatebi, as Gunma Museum of Art, Tatebayashi is fondly referred to, “Nature and Human Beings,” the theme of our museum is considered mainly through the works in our collection, including the newly acquired Visiting Miyama Temple by Yamaguchi Akira. In addition, contemporary artists Abe Taisuke and Hoshi Motoko will create works in which visitors are invited to participate with our museum as their theme. It should be an exhibition for many people to enjoy inside and outside of the museum.

In Commemoration of the 20th Anniversary of the Opening of Gunma Museum of Art, Tatebayashi: François Pompon (tentative title)

Commemorating the twentieth anniversary of the opening of Gunma Museum of Art, Tatebayashi, we will hold the first major retrospective in Japan of the works by François Pompon. At the beginning of the twentieth century, Pompon innovated smooth, refined animal sculptures, which proved revolutionary in the history of that genre. By adding works on loan from museums in France, through representative works dating from early on in his career to his later years and abundant materials such as photographs, picture postcards, and tools, we shall look into the background of the emergence of Pompon’s beautiful animal sculptures and their charm.

Through Nagai’s works in our collection, we shall learn how to look at posters and how to enjoy them.
