• Exhibition Overview
SUNTORY MUSEUM of ART

When we encounter something beautiful, we usually experience two kinds of reactions. One may be moved by learning the background of the work or the artist, while the other one is an emotional excitement we feel for no apparent reason. Inspired by this duality, Oki Sato, chief designer and founder of nendo, proposes to enjoy this collection of Japanese art from two different perspectives; an informative way for the left side of the brain, and a more intuitive approach for the right side of the brain. In other words, this exhibition can be enjoyed twice. While you learn new things about Japanese aesthetics, you can also learn a little bit about yourself. So, do you prefer information or inspiration?
