Exhibition "Wild: Untamed Mind"

Exhibition "Wild: Untamed Mind"

October 20, 2017 (Fri) - February 4, 2018 (Sun)
Gallery 1, Gallery 2

The base of our culture and life lies in the "untamed mind." This mind affects both human instinct and intellect, and it is the trigger and stimulant for creativity.
What does the "untamed mind" mean in today's context? How can people rediscover it within themselves? How can they understand and express its previously-undetected qualities? This exhibition focuses on the fascinating power of the instinctive, untamed mind of contemporary creators, unveiling how to detect the "untamed mind" through their works and archives.

Exhibition Director: Shinichi Nakazawa

"In the two hundred years since the invention of photography, along with innovations in technology, photography has been forced to transform from inside and out, and major changes have occurred in its forms of expression, production techniques, and the relationship between the people who make and receive photographs. This exhibition examines cities and people with a fresh perspective, and makes a pluralistic world of expression that transcends the framework of conventional photographs resemble new stars, and attempts to communicate the pulse of future photography cities."

"A musical composition surely is a single structure meticulously designed from overall to the details. And I think it is difficult for us listeners to directly intuit the structure inherent to a musical composition, compared to various fields of design which entails visual quality. The theme of this exhibition is to structurally grasp music, which is an auditory experience along the time axis, from diverse perspectives."

"In 1925 Soetsu Yanagi, who focused on the beauty in everyday objects used by the common people, named folk arts and crafts made by anonymous craftsmen "mingei". Based on the activities of the Japan Folk Crafts Museum opened in Komaba, Tokyo in 1936 to serve as the headquarters of the mingei movement, the exhibition reveals the face of "mingei" leading to modern design, together with the ideas behind its foundation."
