In his multifaceted career as a modern artist, Taro Okamoto created over 140 works of art such as monuments and murals, which have been displayed in 70 public spaces such as parks and schools throughout Japan. Okamoto strongly believed that his art should not be owned by individuals and therefore continued to place his creations in public spaces so that they can be seen by everyone.
Moreover, he believed artwork should not exist for the sake of art and should be widely accessible in our daily life, and that art plays a significant role in connecting society as it invokes a range of feelings and emotions.
This exhibition commemorates the recent renewal of the “Tower of the Sun”, which was constructed for EXPO70, as well as appreciating the public art that Okamoto has created for our society throughout his life.
In addition, this exhibition is set to introduce a variety of Okamoto’s works that have been placed around Japan, such as those he made from mosaic tiles in the early stages of his career as well as original molds, drawings, sketches and pictures of the “Tower of the Sun” on display in Senri, Osaka, and the “Myth of Tomorrow” on display in Shibuya.
We sincerely hope that this exhibition will give its audience the opportunity to perceive Okamoto’s message to the world, which is to question your surroundings and to not be afraid of conflict as it will bring about mutual improvement.
