The Collection of National Museum of EthnologyShell Road

Introduced in this exhibition are approximately 160 examples of Oceanian, African, and Asian shellwork from the collection of the National Museum of Ethnology. We hope that while discovering the richness of their forms, you will be able to understand their social backgrounds or the cultures of everyday life and reconsider how our relationship with shells has been fostered.

From Museum CollectionIs Painting Still?

“Things” given form to by having lines drawn on a “at plane,” being colored, and being attached to the wall—Unlike animation and movies, don’t you regard “pictures” and “photographs” as still things that do not move? The galleries this summer await you with works brimming with tranquil energy that can be enjoyed by everyone from grown-ups to children.

From Museum CollectionForms in the Modern Art

In Japanese, generally speaking, the word "modan [modern]" is used when referring to something "up-to-date" and further, "stylish." On the other hand, the word modan itself can even sound "retro," but it originally refers to "novelty." Presented here are "forms of novelty" artists of different periods in the twentieth century attempted.
