Over the past decade the Mori Art Gallery within the Roppongi Hills Complex has hosted some of the most popular exhibitions in Tokyo. Our favorite’s among these have been the exhibitions that group together works under a theme including ‘Happiness’ in 2003, ‘Humor’ in 2007 and ‘Medicine and Art’ in 2009.
For it’s 10th anniversary Exhibition the Mori Gallery has curated another superb exhibition under the theme of ‘LOVE’. ‘All You Need Is Love’ brings together artists from all over the world including Dali, Hockney, Hirst, Araki, Emin, Yasumasa and Koons to name just a few.
As the Museum explains,
‘For human beings, love is the most precious of things. To mark its 10th anniversary, the Mori Art Museum will take the theme of “love.” Via around 200 works ranging from celebrated contributions to art history, to ambitious new works, the exhibition explores love in its myriad forms – starting romantic love, extending to love of family, and love of mankind. Possessed of a complexity that causes it to occasionally stray into the realms of hatred and jealousy, love also has the ability to transcend conflict of every sort. The exhibition will present renowned works depicting love in its many manifestations, including the new kinds of bond we forge in today’s internet – connected world. What does “love” mean to you? Join us to experience love anew, through the medium of art.’
