About the Exhibition

The year 2024 began with a serious earthquake on the Noto Peninsula. Every few years, a major disaster strikes our country and has a huge impact on our lives.
From a larger perspective, the landscapes we see may be precious and irreplaceable amidst the various problems occurring in the world, such as global warming, resource depletion, and destruction caused by war. This time, the museum will exhibit various artistic expressions and materials that address the earth, environment, and nature.
We hope that through viewing this exhibition, visitors will rediscover the beauty and splendor of the environment, nature, and landscapes, and that they will be inspired to take action to prevent the loss of these irreplaceable things in the future.
