Meet the collection

In celebration of the Yokohama Museum of Art’s 30th anniversary, which neatly corresponds with the length of the Heisei era, the museum is marking this milestone with an exhibition from their extensive permanent collection. Works by Japanese artists are interspersed with those by well-known, international artists, with paintings, prints, photographs, sculptures and more on view. The exhibition is made up of two parts: LIFE and WORLD. WORLD ends June 23 and will be replaced by The Eye of a Connoisseur: The Legendary Hara Sankei Collection. LIFE is on view until September 1. Four Japanese artists have curated “encounters” between their own work and works by other artists from the museum collection. Yusuke Asai (partial view of his Tree of Life above) is one of these curators and his section is dramatic.
