The world in which we live is fraught with problems—problems we are apt to simply turn our backs on. If we want to keep living happily and comfortably, hereafter, it is important that we take a stance of looking sincerely at the world and trying to find some small way to make a change. The artworks by four artists in this exhibition in each case emerged from the artist’s efforts to examine his world and ponder its problems as if they were his own. The works suggest to us possible approaches to problems and, moreover, throw light on the direction that society is taking. The works, thus, present us with an occasion to stop and look at the state of the world around us, and begin to move—even if very slowly—toward meaningful change in the world.

Genichiro Inokuma—My Resume Upcoming Part 1: It Takes Courage to Paint

Date: Wed. 6 April 2016 - Thu. 30 June 2016
Hours: 10:00 - 18:00 (Admission until 30 minutes before closing time) Open Everyday
In January 1979, Genichiro Inokuma (1902-93) looked back on his life in the Nihon Keizai Shimbun’s popular column, “My Resume” (Watashi no Rirekisho). In a light-hearted vein, he wrote of how he was raised in pastoral surroundings in Kagawa, Shikoku—a child with a love of drawing pictures, then went out into the wide world and forged a career as a painter through hard work while befriending people of all backgrounds. Drawing from Inokuma’s recollections, this two-part exhibition will survey his life and work through artworks and materials related to episodes in his artistic career. Part I of the exhibition will trace his development from childhood and middle school to his art college years and studies in Paris in his late thirties.
