Taguchi Art Collection
Global New Art

Modern art helps us to realize new ways of looking at the world and new possibilities. It is the unseen sustenance of our hearts, always there for us within our day-to-day lives. However, compared to those arts which are near to us like music or fashion, there are not that many people who enjoy modern art on a regular basis. For this exhibition, we have gathered together about 40 charming and impactful pieces in an attempt to help you feel the creativity and energy of modern art. These pieces are on loan from the collector Hiroshi Taguchi; among them are pieces by artists actively working with global galleries and in international exhibitions – events which might collectively be called the World Cup of art. The exhibition will feature the thoughts of each artist alongside their works, and include an exhibit recreating the living space of the collector.Come and experience a connection with art unlike any you have felt before. This exhibition is sure to help you enjoy modern art more than ever.
