Gift, Gift,
ギフト、ギフト、

We, the design team of the Hachinohe Art Museum, designed the venue for the “Gift, Gift,” exhibition commemorating its opening. Given that this was the museum’s first exhibition and that it was a group show of several artists, we thought that the first priority was to fully demonstrate the unique qualities of each artist, and promote the new building to people. We organized the exhibition in a way that visitors can experience the entire museum and the exhibition at the same time by assigning areas outside the regular galleries as exhibition spaces under each artist’s work plan. It was an opportunity for visitors to get to know how the building is structured. Curators, volunteer staff, and those who will be working in the building were able to learn how to use the building through this experience. For us, the design team, it was an invaluable opportunity to understand the gap between planning and actual operation. 

八戸市美術館開館記念「ギフト、ギフト、」の会場構成は、美術館の建築設計チームがデザインすることとなった。美術館にとって最初の展覧会であること、複数の作家のグループ展であることをふまえ、各作家の個性が十分に発揮でき、新しい建物を人々に知ってもらうことがまずは重要だと考えた。そこで各作品プランに合わせて、通常の展示室以外の場所も展示スペースとして割り当てることで、新しい美術館の全体と展覧会を同時に経験できるように構成した。そしてこのことは実は、来館者に建物の構造を知ってもらうだけではなく、学芸員やボランティアスタッフなど、今後建物に関わる人たちがこの建物の使い方を学ぶ機会でもあったし、設計チームにとっても、計画したことと実際の運用のギャップを学ぶ代えがたい機会となった。
