Exhibition

Female Gaze:Arts Maebashi Collection

2018・02・02 - 2018・03・04

This exhibition gathers artworks selected from our museum collection including both western-style and Japanese-style works that have women as their motif, as well as other works by female artists who have a connection with Gunma. Viewing female figures from the20th century, starting from the nudes, a traditional theme in western countries, and proceeding to the other portraits of women wearing kimono and western-style clothes, you can see how the representation of women has been changing according to the times. On the other hand, if you move your attention to the contemporary artists, you can also notice how they experiment with a wide range of technique. This time, we wish to present the works of SHIOBARA Tomoko, who works on collages of Japanese paper and other materials, while using materials that are traditional of Japanese-style paintings, and TERAMURA Sachiko, who creates artworks with silk applying tie-dye techniques. The exhibition aims at presenting women portraits together with the activities of the female artists and, while interpreting women’s figures, also focuses on the looks that come and go touring the fine arts world.
