Profile

    Kankai Pavilion
    To commemorate the 20th anniversary of Hara Museum ARC, a special gallery space called the Kankai Pavilion (designed by Arata Isozaki) was built in 2008. It references the traditional shoin (drawing room) style of Japanese architecture and reveals a high level of artisanship, from the wood work to the use of black mortar and washi paper in the finishing. The most advanced LED-based illumination was also used to closely mimic the light of traditional Japanese candles. The result is a space that reproduces the original Japanese environment in which the works were viewed in the past. At the Kankai Pavilion, viewers will be able to enjoy exhibitions of traditional East Asian art from the Hara Rokuro Collection, displayed together with works of contemporary art from the Hara Museum Collection.
