Exhibitions are usually defined by a theme or narrative, with works not only carefully selected by a curator, but also displayed in a calculated manner that includes the placement of pieces and the order they are shown. This makes many exhibitions a subjective view of artworks, not a personal one from the visitors’ perspective.

For this eclectic exhibition of pieces belonging to The National Museum of Modern Art, Kyoto, visitors are encouraged to view the art in whichever order they choose and to think about the relationship between the pieces on display.

The National Museum of Modern Art, Kyoto; Okazaki Enshoji-cho, Sakyo-ku, Kyoto. Higashiyama Stn. 9:30 a.m.-5 p.m. ¥900. Closed Mon. 075-761-4111; www.momak.go.jp
