Since ancient times, windows have been intimately connected connected to our daily lives.
In art in particular, windows have long had a close relationship to painting, cutting out pieces of the world around us by means of a square frame and providing us with new points of view. A similar interest has been carried on in other media, including photography, film, and installation, and continues to the present day.
Moreover, in the field of architecture, the development of various devices and techniques, and aesthetic considerations have led to the creation of windows with a diverse range of forms througout history and all over the world.
This exhibition assembles a group of manifold works dealing with windows, from masterful paintings by Matisse and Klee to contemporary art. It also includes invaluable drawings by architect such sa Le Corbusier and Kahn, and introduces the genre-spanning world of windows. In addition, the architect Sou Fujimoto will present a large concept model in the museum's front garden.
This exhibition marks the first project jointly organized by the Window Research Institute and the National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo.
