Trio: Modern Art Collections from Paris, Tokyo and Osaka

Time Out says

This one-of-a-kind exhibition is something of a three-way modern art love-in. A trio of world-class art museums – from Tokyo, Osaka and Paris – come together to present highlights from their collections in an imaginative new way. The exhibition concept itself draws upon the idea of the ‘trio’: key works from the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, Osaka’s Nakanoshima Museum of Art and the hosting MOMAT are shown in series of threes, with each group highlighting commonalities between the diverse works included.

The total of 34 trios, divided into seven chapters, is comprised of over 150 works from a lineup that reads like a who’s-who of modern art. Jean-Michel Basquiat, Salvador Dalí, Yves Klein, Yayoi Kusama, Henri Matisse, Yoshitomo Nara, Mark Rothko and Pablo Picasso are among the 100 artists featured, whose work encompasses painting, installations, sculpture, photography and more.

Trios and chapters avoid conventional means of grouping and categorising art, such as era, school or Western/Eastern. Instead a freer, borderless approach is adopted, which finds commonalities including subject matter, motifs, materials and the context in which the works were created. The result is some intriguing new ways to view, understand and enjoy modern art from the early 20th century through to the present day.

The exhibition is closed on Monday (except July 15, Aug 12) as well as July 16 and Aug 13.
