Until 2 February 2020, you can visit the new exhibition of 226 Japanese posters in the Gallery of Honour of the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam.
The new exhibition of Stedelijk Museum is a posthumous tribute to Japanese graphic designer Shigeru Watano (1937-2012) and features 226 Japanese posters on display in the Gallery of Honour. Watano, who lived in The Netherlands, was a vital link between the Stedelijk and numerous Japanese designers. Through his help, the museum was able to acquire many Japanese posters, and Japanese designers generously donated their work to the museum.
The exhibition showcases a cross-section of Japan’s unique graphic design with work by designers such as amongst others Hiroshi Ochi, Kazumasa Nagai, Ikko Tanaka, Yusaku Kamekura, Mitsuo Katsui, Shigeo Fukuda, U.G. Sato, Ken Miki and Eiko Ishioka. The oldest poster dates from 1937, the most recent from 2018.
Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam is opened daily from 10.00 until 18.00 and on Friday from 10.00 to 22.00. Tickets for adults are € 18,50 and € 10,00 for students.
