KAJ FRANCKGEOMETRY

One of the most highly esteemed designers in Finland, Kaj Franck (1911-1989) has been called "the good conscience of Finnish design" for bringing into the world a range of everyday items rich with functional beauty. This exhibition, his first major solo show in Japan, will display around 300 of his key works with the intention of building up a complete picture of Franck as a designer. We will also be displaying photographs Franck took himself during a visit to Japan in the 1950s and other materials that will shine a light on the intrigue he felt towards Japan.

From Museum CollectionSound to See, Color to Hear

There are works of art that set out to express sound visually. Some of them present scenes of people playing instruments and dancing, others incorporate scores and musical symbols, while still others have titles suggestive of musical pieces. We can hear the sounds of rain and wind from paintings depicting nature, or the din of the city from urban portraits. In this exhibition, we invite viewers to enjoy a range of pictures whose colors and forms resonate off one another, bringing us sensations akin to hearing harmony and rhythm.
