“The contact point of tradition and modern age” is the basic concept for our exhibits. Along with the works of National Living Treasures Kei and Yu Fujiwara, artwork such as paintings and crafts from the National Living Treasure Museum will be on display. Last year, we were able to include award winning works from the largest global international open art exhibition, “Art Olympia”.
At FAN Museum, we not only display the Memorial Hall, but also the mansion and studio visited by many well-known dignitaries starting from resident artists Kei & Yu Fujiwara, to the imperial family. An art concierge with great knowledge of the artwork will accompany visitors and give detailed commentary as they tour the vast property which the museum lies on.
“Experience” is an important aspect of FAN Museum. We have prepared services and projects such as green tea served in a ware created by a National Living Treasure, and pottery making in the studio where National Living Treasures have created their work.
FAN Museum strives to be a museum where you not only focus on viewing artwork, but to enjoy art through experience and move beyond the stereotype of a museum.
