It is with great pleasure that we present Collections: Winter 2013/14.

The Museum of Modern Art, Wakayama, whose predecessor was the Wakayama

Prefectural Museum (founded in 1963), inaugurated in the building of Kenmin

Bunka Kaikan (the Cultural Hall for Citizens) in November 1970. It kept

mainly forcusing on introducing artists related to Wakayama after the Meiji

Restoration and started its activities anew at the current building designed by

architect KUROKAWA Kisho in 1994. On the occasion of the relocation, it

expanded the range of the collection, and it now holds more than 10,000-piece of

works from home and abroad.

The exhibits at Collection Galleries are changed seasonally with various aspects,

and this time with four sections: Artists from Wakayama and Modern Art,

Dissolving Abstraction and Human and Clothing in the first half, and at the last

section after the featuring exhibition Human and Universe comes a small

section named Aspects of Plates.

The first section Artists from Wakayama and Modern Art introduces the

tendency of the Modern Art in Japan which explored its own identity after being

exposed to the western culture in the Meiji Era, with works by local artists and

recent acquisitions. The following section Dissolving Abstraction focuses on

strokes on large paintings by Mark ROTHKO, OKADA Kenzo, YAMADA

Masaaki and so on. At the Human and Clothing, various works are gathered in

the light of clothes which are never separated from the expression of human

beings but are usually paid no attention. To see works cutting across the

boundaries of time and place would let us find new sides of art works.

The last section of this exhibition is Aspects of Plates, a related display to the

simultaneous show Human and Universe, where are three printing artists are

introduced. Here are also presented artists who were especially interested in

the characteristics of each method of printing. Centering around

Wakayama-born artists YOSHIDA Masaji and HAMAGUCHI Yozo, the former

was in pursuit of woodcut and the latter pictured sophisticatedly with black of

mezzotint, we hope you enjoy various aspects of printing methods.

Approximately 110 works will be on view.
