Thoughts on Art in Hokkaido

This exhibition focuses mainly on artists related to Hokkaido and their works discussed in Kita no bi no kokoro (2015), a collection of essays by Okuoka Shigeo (former vice director of our museum, art critic).

Contemporary Glass Art


Spurred by movements in pursuit of new forms of art, which arose in Europe in the latter half of the 1950s, and the Studio Glass Movement in the US in the 1960s, contemporary glass art spread and flourished worldwide. Presented here are a wide variety of expressions and their charms.
