Among the most brilliant pieces in this collection of 65 works from the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts in Moscow is Claude Monet’s Luncheon on the Grass, painted just before the dawn of Impressionism.

New Wave: Japanese Contemporary Art of the 1980s

November 3, 2018–January 20, 2019

The ’80s were a major turning point for contemporary art in Japan. The decade saw the rise of a younger generation of artists who favored new types of expression that were sensuous and personal in contrast to the problematic and conceptual art of the previous era. This exhibition reexamines the achievements of the ’80s through a wide range of works, and reproduces various aspects of the era, in which traditional notions of art underwent a huge transformation.

Christian Boltanski (tentative title)

February 9–May 6, 2019

In this retrospective, we look back at the work of Christian Boltanski, one of France’s preeminent artists, who has been dealing with themes such as history, memory, death, and absence since the late ’60s. While focusing on the artist’s activities over the last half century, the entire exhibition will also function as an installation that can be viewed as a single work of art.
