Mindfulness! Takahashi Collection 2016

November 3, 2016 - January 22, 2017

The collection from one of Japan’s leading collectors of contemporary art, Ryutaro Takahashi, contains over 2500 pieces and is continuing to expand on a large scale. The “Neoteny Japan Takahashi Collection”, which was displayed in seven art museums across the country between 2008 and 2010, contained many indispensible works which provided an overview of Japanese contemporary art since the 1990s, and was recognized as an extremely important collection, both nationally and abroad. This time, the exhibition “Mindfulness! 2016” showcases those who have driven Japan’s contemporary art, beginning with the center point of Takahashi’s collection, Yayoi Kusama, and following on with a range of artists, from Tadanori Yokoo, Yasumasa Morimura, Katsura Funakoshi, to Yoshitomo Nara, Takashi Murakami, Makoto Aida and Tomoko Konoike. This includes artists who have a connection with Kochi Prefecture, from Sawako Goda, Chiharu Shiota and Kazuyuki Takezaki, to notable young artists, including Erina Matsui and Asami Kiyokawa, allowing you to savor the delights of Takahashi’s collection in an exhibition arrangement.
