This exhibition introduces a wide range of collections, including paintings, sculptures, and Oriental ceramics from the Pola Museum of Art, along with the works of artists who are active at the forefront of contemporary art. This is the first full-scale exhibition focused on contemporary art writers since its opening in 2002. The Pola Museum of Art, which has been working with the works of masters such as Monet and Picasso, has expanded its outlook to contemporary expression and takes a new step.
The exhibition title “Cincopation” is a technique that deliberately shifts the rhythm in music and gives expressions and tension to the music. Various expressions by contemporary artists, such as installations, sounds, images, outdoor exhibitions, photographs, paintings, etc. that spread throughout the entire space, shed light on contemporary masters' works that transcend eras and borders. It brings various rhythms that shake our sense of living.
The Pola Museum of Art held in the bounty of nature has sought “symbiosis between nature and art” and has been aiming to regain the connection between the two. The expression of past and present in art should not be cut off, but should continue to create new relationships. The time and rhythm contained in the collections meets contemporary expression and creates a new sound in the rich nature of Hakone.
"The highlight here!"

2. Art to experience
In addition to “seeing” such as large installations, video works, and sound works, you can experience and enjoy art.
3. An outdoor installation that appears in the nature of Hakone
Susan Phillips, the leading artist of sound art, has developed a new installation of “Sound” on the forest trail. Fantastic tones produced after staying in Hakone reverberate in the forest.

The Pola Museum of Art was opened in Hakone, Kanagawa in 2002, with the concept of “Harmony's symbiosis between nature and art”. The collection of the Pola Museum of Art has been collected over 40 years by Tsuneji Suzuki, the second generation of the founder of Pola. 10,000 points. Hakone's nature and landscape-conscious buildings are 8 meters above the ground, and many of the buildings are placed underground and melt into the forest. In July 2013, we opened a promenade to enjoy the rich nature of Fuji Hakone Izu National Park. In the forest where beech Himeshara grows, you can enjoy nature walks together with art works.
The largest collection of Western paintings centered on Impressionism such as Monet and Renoir is Japan's largest. Despite being in a tourist spot called Hakone, you can relax and enjoy authentic artwork. One of the special points is that the lighting in the exhibition room is set at “Dusk of Paris in July” so that impressionist works can be enjoyed beautifully. In addition, you can renew the original goods and the course menu of the restaurant according to the theme of each special exhibition, so that you can enjoy it without getting tired even if you visit every exhibition or season. Please spend a time to touch abundant collection and work of artist playing an active part in the present age in architectural space full of light.
