Our Attitudes

Exhibition: August 28, Sunday to October 30, Sunday 2022

Venue: Contemporary Art Museum Kumamoto galleryⅢ

Time: 10:00 - 20:00 

Closed: Tuesday.

Admission: Free

As part of the 20th anniversary project of the Museum of Contemporary Art, Kumamoto, this exhibition features works by artists born in Kumamoto in the 1980s, and introduces new forms of expression that have sprouted from Kumamoto over the past 20 years.

The title of this exhibition is a reference to the inaugural exhibition “ATTITUDE 2002” at the Contemporary Art Museum, Kumamoto. When the museum opened, many of the artists in this exhibition were still students, and many of them were greatly influenced by the existence and planning of the museum. Today, each of them has his or her own "attitude" and is active as an independent artist both in Japan and abroad.

In this exhibition, along with the current exhibition of their works, through related programs such as interviews and talks with the artists, we will explore the relationships that have arisen between the younger generation and the museum as well as looking into how the museum’s existence played a formative role. While looking back on the past,we will also explore the possibilities of what the museum could be in the future.

Peach and chestnut trees bear fruit in three, persimmon in eight.


MIYAMOTO Hanako / Born in 1987, artist and creator of this exhibition


When I was 15, the Contemporary Art Museum, Kumamoto opened.

It was a big event for the people of Kumamoto Prefecture.


At least for me, the contemporary art exhibitions that I saw in this museum when I was a student have become a base for me as a creator. The artists participating in this exhibition were students and spectators when the museum opened 20 years ago. There is a saying, "Peach chestnut three years, persimmon eight years",

To what extent will museums and artists be fruitful?

In addition, in order to reach fruition, to continue activities, museums, artists, What kind of attitude is necessary for the region, society, and environment where they exist?

I wanted to ask this question on the occasion of the museum's 20th anniversary, and proposed this project to the museum.

というドイツの中でも、特別な土地で暮らしています。両者は複数の共通点があると同時に、作品、方向性、キャラクター etc..どれをとっても、真逆と言えるほど、異なる性質を持つ存在です。ドイツで出会い、交流もあり、現在共に「移動」が重要な要素となっている二名の作品が、明治時代の建築洋館・大川市立清力美術館を、どのような空間に変貌させるのか。
