第7回 すどう美術館収蔵作品展   [ The 7th Gallery SUDOH Collection Exhibition ]

Thank you for watching the video.

Collection exhibitions have a different atmosphere than solo or group exhibitions.

Many large museums display their collections in permanent exhibitions.

I believe that the museum collects historically valuable works and works by artists who are active today, based on its own rationale.

It is a little different when collectors collect.

I feel that it has more to do with taste and artists.

In this case, the works were collected by the director and deputy director of the Gallery SUDOH.

The techniques and materials used varied from prints to oil paintings to mixed media, but they were all two-dimensional works in the exhibition.

In the “Director’s Commentary,” we heard about episodes with the artists.

Here are some of the episodes there.

One day, Masami Kubota said that he wanted to create a work of art for the director, and the director readily agreed, although he thought, (“I don’t want to have a lot of holes in my face…”).

The work he is holding in his hand in the video is one of his most cherished works, and he often hung it in the director’s office.

Genichiro Inokuma was related to Sokichi Suga, the painter who inspired the collection, and he passed away just as the director was about to go talk to him.

Genichiro Inokuma was the only artist whose work was in the exhibition that the director had not met.

Purchasing a work of art involves a drastic decision.

There is a story in each of them, an encounter with a work of art and an encounter with an artist.

It is fun to know its story as a way to enjoy the collection exhibition.

Of course, it is also fun to enjoy the works purely for their artwork.

Enjoy contemporary artworks in your home or office!
