Barcelona: The City of Artistic Miracles

Barcelona: The City of Artistic Miracles

Saturday, February 8, 2020 - Sunday, April 5

The formidable economic strength and distinctive language and culture of the cosmopolitan city of Barcelona have shaped its unique artistic legacy. This exhibition showcases the arts that flourished in Catalonia during a period of roughly 80 years, from the 1850s when the city engaged in modernization, through the time of the 1888 Barcelona Universal Exposition, and up until the Spanish Civil War. The approximately 130 items on display include works by architects who drove forward the modernization of the city, including Gaudí and Montaner, and great artists such as Picasso, Miró, Dali, Santiago Rusiñol, and Ramon Casas.

Kanda Nissho: A Retrospective

Kanda Nissho: A Retrospective

Saturday, April 18 - Sunday, June 28, 2020

Kanda Nissho (1937-1970) continued to create art while working as a farmer on the Tokachi plains. This retrospective marks the 50th anniversary of his death and is the first large-scale traveling exhibition of his works to be held in Tokyo for 42 years. Nissho is the artist on whom the character of Yamada Ten’yō in the NHK drama series Natsuzora is modeled. He is well-known for his powerful, realistic depictions of horses and laborers, but he was also keenly aware of contemporary art and tried out many new styles. This exhibition draws upon the latest research and aims to present the full story about Nissho.
