20th Century Sculpture Collection
Green Gallery
Until September 1

The Hakone Open-Air Museum opened on August 1, 1969 as Japan’s first outdoor museum, with the aim of disseminating and promoting the art of sculpture.

From the time of its founding, the museum has also featured an indoor exhibition area attuned to the ever-changing mountain climate. This has enabled us to amass a collection of sculptures that can be exhibited indoors. Over the course of nearly half a century, and with the support of the Fujisankei Communications Group, we have built up a collection that provides a sweeping view of the history of 20th century sculpture.

In this exhibition we present some of the treasures of our modern sculpture collection, together with new acquisitions. We hope that visitors will take time to appreciate the intimate scale of these artworks and discover the innovative spirit of modernity.
