In this exhibit, we introduce both Japanese and foreign works from the museum collection that are related to several keywords such as memory, dreams, fantasy, and words. Among the works are photographs, prints, and drawings. While conveying the diverse range of expressions in contemporary art, the exhibit explores images that strongly affect our vision and imagination, and the way in which they are manifested.

1. Tatsuno Toeko and Japanese Abstract Painting
2. Images of People in Contemporary Art
3. Memories and Afterimages of the City
4. Scenes from Dreams and Fantasies
5. World of Words, World of Pictures
