I went southwards this morning to Shinagawa in order to see the Hara Museum of Contemporary Art, a prewar modernist villa, designed by Jin Watanabe, which was requistioned during the American occupation, left uninhabited for twenty years, and turned into a Museum of Contemporary Art in 1979 by Kunizo Hara, inspired by the example of Louisiana. It shows regular exhibitions – it was about to open an Elizabeth Peyton exhibition – and has the most sophisticated collection box I have ever seen.
And the inscription on the collection box:-
One thought on “Hara Museum of Contemporary Art”
Hand-written Collection Boxes, a good idea. Even in English ?
