Summary

Toyama Glass Art Museum, which commemorates its 5th anniversary this year, collects and exhibits contemporary glass art from Japan and abroad, mainly produced since the 1950s.

In this Collection Exhibition 2020, eighteen artworks are introduced from the museum collection based on the theme of “Inside and Outside.”

When we look at glass, we can see both the inside and outside of glass at the same time because of its transparency, one of the characteristics of the material. Artists make use of this transparency and develop their artistic expressions in their works created by the interaction of elements such as the inner space and outer shape of the glass, and light.

This exhibition introduces expressions produced by the interaction of the inside and outside of the work in view of four keywords; overlap, reflect, capture, and project.
