  • LIGHT: Works from the Tate Collection

    12 July – 2 October 2023
    The National Art Center, Tokyo


    The show features art works on the theme of “light”, selected from the Tate collection, tracing the trajectory of creation by artists over two centuries from the end of the 18th century to the present day.

    Japan (at Tokyo and Osaka) will be the final stop of this international show, travelling after China, South Korea, Australia and New Zealand.


    LIGHT: Works from the Tate Collection

    The show will examine the rendering of “light” in creative works from different angles – spiritual light, natural light, indoor light, coulor and light, and the reconstruction of light.

    The exhibits will consist of approximately 120 works on loan from the Tate collection, of which about 100 pieces will be on display for the first time in the country.

    The featured artists include William Turner, John Constable, Claude Monet, Olafur Eliasson, Yayoi Kusama, László Moholy-Nagy, Bridget Riley and James Turrell.

    Also on view are works of art installations using light.
