The Chinretsukan Gallery at the University Art Museum of the Tokyo University of the Arts will hold the exhibition “Time in contemporary sculpture” from May 20, 2019.
This is the 10th sculpture exhibition that the Sculpture Department of the Tokyo University of the Arts started planning in 1997. The Department’s teaching staff set the themes based on their individual perspectives, and plan an exhibition that searches for the meaning of contemporary sculptures.
The theme of this year’s exhibition is “time”. Although there has already been an exhibition with the same theme, it focused on viewing modern sculpture within the overall timeline of sculpture history. This year’s exhibition wants visitors to look at sculpture not only in its relation to the vertical axis of time, but to also feel “time” itself as it is now, through the exhibited works. It poses the issue of “time” within multifaceted contemporary art that exhaustively pursues diversity.
Namely, we artists need to reconsider what “time” is to us, especially nowadays when the way we perceive present-day time and space changes daily due to the proliferation of the internet. This exhibition searches for the meaning of “time” in modern art and sculpture, through the works created by artists who share their own idea of “time.”
