国立新美術館

国立新美術館を訪れた。
驚くべきはその大きさである。
目玉となる企画展でさえ、この美術館においては全展示の中のごく一部でしかない。
そもそも企画展自体、大小複数行われているのだが、その他にも、写真や書道などの公募展も同時に開催されており、その数は10種前後に及ぶ。
共用部には飲食コーナーが4箇所も用意されているが、それも納得の展示量だ。
海外の多くの大美術館とは異なり、国立新美術館は常設展が目玉ではない。
企画展をメインに活動しているため、搬出入もかなりの量になるはずだ。
運営はかなり複雑であろうと思うが、それを感じさせない、明快な構成の建物になっている。
いつも大勢の人々が出入りし、機能している。

 

THE NATIONAL ART CENTER, TOKYO [ Mar 3 2010 by TT ]

 

I visited The National Art Center, Tokyo.
Surprising me is its huge volume.
Even special exhibition which should be its highlight is only one of all exhibitions held there.
Originally, special exhibitions themselves are held in multiple numbers, large or small, and besides them, such exhibitions publicly invited as photography and calligraphy, etc., are also held simultaneously, so, total number of exhibitions amounts up to about 10 groups.
At the corner for public use, as much as four different areas for drinking and eating are arranged and this is easily understandable from the total volume of exhibitions.  
Being different from many museums abroad, for this The National Art Center, Tokyo, the permanent exhibition is not specially highlighted one.
At this museum, since those activities are carried special exhibition on mainly, deliveries of artworks in and out should also become considerably large volume.
Operations there would be considered to be very complicated, but museum building itself is constructed so clearly that it does not make us feel as such.
