This exhibition will introduce works of art based on the theme of Taro Okamoto’s “Play”.
What did “Play” mean to Okamoto?
“’Play’ and ‘Have fun’ are completely different. ‘Play’ is serious, humanly, in other words, it is a selfless act where you invest all you have.”How to Live Life, PHP Research Center, 1988 )
In such a way, “Play” for Okamoto was not simply to “have fun” for amusement or avocation, but to live your life seriously, genuinely, and with your all. And perhaps we can also say that this was the very essence of Okamoto’s artistic endeavours. 

This exhibition, with Okamoto’s “Play” as the keyword, will showcase the various works of Okamoto, including paintings and sculptures, as well as things that can be used in daily life. In addition, the exhibition will be showing private videos from Okamoto’s everyday life. Also, during the exhibition period, not only will you be able to look at the artworks, but there will be various events that allow you to exercise your imagination, and use your senses to experience the art pieces, letting you enjoy the works of art from new points of view.  

In addition, at this exhibition, in conjunction with the theme of Taro Okamoto’s “Play”, the works of two current artists, Kurumi Wakaki and Yuta Nakajima, will be introduced, one during the first half of the exhibition period and the other, second half. Please come enjoy the aspiring endeavours of young artists, who will push the boundaries for new expressions
