Windows—a common, indispensable part of our lives. Square or rectangular in shape, they frame the world outside for us to see. People have long perceived a close link between windows and paintings, which also frame for us a world existing elsewhere. As the times have progressed, this link has also been extended to photographs, films, and art installations.
In architecture, windows of varied form and character have continually been devised in every age and region, in response to aesthetic trends and the development of new technologies suiting the regional climate.
This exhibition—which is enhanced by insights from the Window Research Institute—presents window-related artworks ranging from paintings by Pierre Bonnard and Paul Klee to works by contemporary artists. Also featured are valuable drawings by architects such as Le Corbusier and Louis I. Kahn. We invite you to explore the wide world of windows from multiple perspectives.
