CURRENT PROGRAM

Exhibition "SENSE OF HUMOR"

Exhibition "SENSE OF HUMOR"

March 15, 2019 (Fri) - June 30, 2019 (Sun)

Katsumi Asaba, an art director who continues to lead the times, thinks that "humor" is one of the most important senses in communication. In this exhibition, he has gathered documents and found objects that have inspired him, along with the works of designers and artists who share his sense of humor and put them under a single roof. By looking at shapes and expressions of humor from across ages and borders, we can rediscover the humor that surround us in our day-to-day lives. The sense of humor could be called part of the essence of communication that is vital for design and creativity.

UPCOMING PROGRAM

Exhibition "Insects: Models for Design"

Exhibition "Insects: Models for Design"

July 19, 2019 (Fri) - November 4, 2019 (Mon)

Insects are all around us, yet we know surprisingly little about them. This exhibition focuses on insects from various perspectives: the surprising ways in which they work, their structure and their ecology. The more about which you learn, the more surprised you will be. This exhibition presents a novel approach to a new facet of design from insects, by looking at their diversity and relationship to humans.

Over six decades, the Japan Design Committee has undertaken all kinds of initiatives to develop and progress design. The committee members will share as many of their sketches, drawings, documents and mock-ups as they can with the audience. This aims to be an inspiration-filled exhibition that visualizes these "processes created by creators," which would not normally be seen in the light of day.
