Sleeping Beauty

May 17, 2014 - July 21, 2014

Free

Special exhibition at Hiroshima City Museum of Contemporary Art

From the HMOCA website

How can we perceive beauty with the senses in contemporary art, which has a tendency to emphasize theme and concept and to submerge purely aesthetic elements under many layers? Aiming to unearth the “sleeping beauty” hidden in contemporary art and uncover its meanings, this exhibition brings together work from the Hiroshima MOCA collection and other museums in Japan, along with pieces dealing with the body by currently active artists Ange Leccia, Motohiko Odani, Kazuna Taguchi, and Takahiro Iwasaki, and explores various aspects of beauty as seen in contemporary art.

Open 10:00-17:00 (until 19:00 July 20 & 21)
Final admission 30 minutes before closing
Closed Mondays (except July 21)
