As part of visual arts programs, we organize traveling exhibitions with artworks from our own collection that tour countries throughout the world. This exhibition introduces the contemporary photography of Japan, from the 1970s to the present day, through the work of notable photographers selected in two categories, fi gures and landscapes. The exhibition includes 76 photographs by 23 Japanese leading and established photographers such as Nobuyoshi Araki, Daido Moriyama, Takashi Homma, Norio Kobayashi and Masato Seto. The exhibition, curated by Rei Masuda, is composed of two sections: “A Changing Society” and “Changing Landscapes”.
