The Museum of Modern Art, Wakayama
The works included in this MOMAW exhibition explore themes and motifs that are familiar in daily life as well as everyday experiences. However, these recognizable facets of existence are transformed into something unfamiliar, resulting in subtle inconsistencies and gaps designed to make the viewer question. Though the artists included all tended to participate in similar activities—eating, sleeping, working, studying—they managed to interpret everyday activities in profoundly different ways. This is aided by the range of time periods and locales covered in the exhibition. Paintings, photographs, and sculptures spanning various genres and mediums will be displayed.
