Syncopation: Contemporary encounters with the Modern Masters
シンコペーション:世紀の巨匠たちと現代アート

This is the first contemporary art exhibition at the Pola Museum of Art, which previously had focused on exhibiting its own collection of the 19th century western paintings and modern Japanese paintings. This exhibition showcased the museum’s diverse collection of paintings, sculptures, and crafts, along with works by contemporary artists. It was therefore necessary to create exhibition and construction methods which were completely new to the museum instead of using conventional methods they had been accustomed to, including the construction method using movable partitions and the lighting method mainly using spotlights. We carefully studied the sizes and the viewing sequence of the contemporary art works expressed using different methods including sound, film, and installation, as well as the works of the great masters of the 19th and 20th centuries, and placed them in such a way that they corresponded with the scale and proportion of respective rooms.  

19世紀西洋絵画と近代日本画のコレクション展示を中心としてきたポーラ美術館における初の現代美術展となる本展では、ポーラ美術館の絵画、彫刻、工芸など多岐にわたるコレクションを、現代美術の作家たちの作品とともに展示することとなった。したがって、これまでポーラ美術館で行われてきた可動壁を使った会場造作や、スポットライト中心の照明計画ではなく、美術館にとってまったく新しい展示方法や施工手順から作り出すことが必要となった。それぞれ作品のサイズやシークエンスに合わせてプロポーションの違う各室に、音や映像、インスタレーションといった多様な方法で表現される現代の作品と、19~20世紀の巨匠たちの作品を呼応させている。
