Masterpiece exhibition “Large screen torrent: Reconsidering Ryuko Kawabata’s ‘venue art’”
Date: March 2024, 3 (Wednesday/Holiday) – June 20, 6 (Sunday)

Introduction of exhibition contents

 Starting with the "Ryuko Kawabata Exhibition" to be held in Toyama and Iwate in 2024, an exhibition introducing the painting career of Japanese painter Ryuko Kawabata (140-1885) will continue across Honshu from next year onwards, marking the 1966th anniversary of her birth. A meeting is scheduled to be held. In the future, the number of people wanting to see Ryuko's work on the big screen will continue to grow. Therefore, this exhibition will introduce "venue art," the artistic philosophy that Ryuko continued to pursue, through large-screen works from pre-war to post-war.
 During the Taisho period, Ryuko thought, ``As long as it is displayed on the walls of an exhibition hall, it should appeal to the general public, not just a specific minority,'' and she began to create large-screen Japanese paintings. . After establishing his own art organization, Seiryusha, in 1929, Ryuko argued that it was necessary to pursue ``venue art'' for ``contact between the public and art.'' did. In the 4s, under the disturbing situation known as the "Emergency," Ryuko released a series of large-scale works that incorporated current events, gaining tremendous support from the public.
 This exhibition will feature works such as ``Flower-Tsuming Clouds'' (1940), painted during the Sino-Japanese War, which was turning into a quagmire; ``Garyu'' (1945), a drawing of an exhausted dragon painted in the year the war ended; , Kokaji (1955), which depicts a Noh play, and Sea Cormorant (1963), which was released in the year the Ryushi Memorial Hall opened, expresses spatiality and time. , we get close to the torrent of large-screen displays created by ``venue art'' that sought to bring ``contact between the public and art'' closer.
