Mars in the last week

I passed by the Fukuoka Art Museum to check out the Giant Robots exhibition last October. As someone that grew up watching mecha anime shows this was a real pleasure to attend. I like that it started with the earliest shows from the 1970’s with super robots like Mazinger, Tetsujin, Combattler, and their history. Plus they also covered Gundam, Macross, Votoms, Dougram, and more. They also had a nice merchandise section at the end where I bought some memorabilia. I only wish I had enough time to see the rest of the museum.

This museum has a good selection of artworks as a wonderful indoor activity, especially during the long Fukuoka rainy days.

Neat museum with exhibits each unique in style, from modern to historic. Upon ascending the stairs towards the entrance of the Museum, you are greeted by a very nice butt. Certainly a sign of great things to come, I thought to myself. A Rome exhibit was on during my visit, which was interesting, very historic. A giant hand and a Cherrio haired bust caught my attention the most; both favourites now. In the modern art sections, a rather interesting piece called “Mother As A Void” was my favourite. From across the room it lures you in, mind struggling to comprehend what it’s seeing, a black emptiness seated on the ground. No light reflects off it so its absorption of all light makes it quite unusual to look at. Don’t know why I was expecting that the longer and harder you look into the void, that something would be looking back. Sadly, but understandably, no photos were allowed for some of the cooler instalments. Also, don’t skip the civic exhibit, it was a place of many interesting works of art by the community and some students it seems. Some very talented kids share some great works of art.

For ¥200 this place wayyyy over delivers. You can do the whole thing in an hour if you are in a hurry. There's even a yayoi piece located outside that you can see for free. Many of the exhibits do not allow photos but the ones that do still have signs posted.

I came initially for the Yayoi Kusuma pumpkin, and became pleasantly surprised with the old and contemparary Japanese artwork on display, particularly the woman shooting out cherry blossoms! It is a compact museum, just right for a leisurely experience. There was also a nice student art showcase (always good to support youth and the art)!
