Special Exhibition: ‘A Message of Peace – Passion, Vitality, Prayer’
‘Nagoya Castle and the rising golden sun’
- March 28th 2018 (Wednesday) - June 25th 2018 (Monday)
Artist Koji Kinutani has always believed that “Art is more powerful than any weapon in the world!”
Art helps transcend the barriers of language, religion, environments and history that tend to divide human beings. It is indeed a prayer for peace, and a harbinger of a promising and bright future, away from conflict.
It is now, more than ever, that this world needs the power of art.
We hope that visitors to this exhibition can enjoy viewing the various worlds envisaged by Koji Kinutani, from the various aspects of contemporary society to mythologies, and experience for themselves the feelings of dreams, hope and the joy of love that lie beyond the realms of anger and sorrow.
‘non voglio più Room of tears Ⅱ’
1st anniversary special exhibition
- December 21th 2017 (Thursday) - March 26th 2018 (Monday)
It has been a year since Koji Kinutani Tenku Art Museum opened last December. A great many people have visited us as the place to send out culture and art in Umeda, Osaka. For a special exhibition commemorating our first anniversary, we will host “Time brimming with joy - sing, eat, love, and art -”.
Koji Kinutani went to Italy to study fresco painting (mural) in the 1970s. He was truly amazed at the atmosphere he felt there and the people who were innocent and enjoying their lives, and formed the original point of those current works overflowing with energy. We are displaying amusing and joyful works expressing the delightful Italian feeling “Amare, cantare e mangiare (Love, sing and eat)”.
We hope you will enjoy this blissful time to your heart’s content.
