Takayama Akira/ Port B : Where We Now Stand—In Order to Map the Future

Takayama Akira will be participating
21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa
September 14(Sat)-December 19(Thu), 2019

Now in our 15th anniversary year, the museum’s collection stands at 3,880 artworks—an achievement of the two decades since collecting began in 2000, prior to the museum’s opening. In those two decades, society has changed radically, a phenomenon the collection strongly reflects in its growing number of artworks sharply attuned to their times. This exhibition will reinterpret the collected works from the perspective of today’s issues so as to form a picture of where we now stand, in a complexly diversifying world, and begin sketching out a map of the future.
