As we take our first step in the 21st century, our intellects and emotions are becoming more and more the authorities we rely on. The vitality of individual life has been disappearing under the weight of Japan's economic growth, but to bring out the inherent human sparkle in our daily lives, fresh thinking and unique viewpoints presented through the medium of art can renew that vitality. At the same time they can give us pointers and hope for the future and the wealth of changes it will bring.
From this standpoint, themes of special exhibition including paintings, sculptures, photographs, video works, installation works, designs, fashion, and architecture at Tokyo Opera City Art Gallery are chosen to introduce the works of contemporary artists from around the world who express their energy through their art. Most art works depend greatly on interaction with the environment in which they are viewed. For this reason, the 4 galleries in Tokyo Opera City Art Gallery were designed based on the "white cube" concept, considered the ideal for displaying various arts. The exhibition room sizes, ceiling heights, natural light strategy, positioning of artificial lighting ,and the internal finish of the exhibition rooms were all designed on the bases of this concept.
