One of the representative works of the Yokohama Museum of Art, the story (about 400 characters) created from Rene Magritte's "King's Museum" exhibited in the "Trialogue Exhibition" (November 14, 2020-February 28, 2021) When we recruited, we received more than 1,000 applications. In addition to works from the general public, multiple schools inside and outside Yokohama worked on the lessons and delivered the stories of children and students.

We have selected 3 winning works from a large number of attractive works. In judging, we emphasized whether the idea was based on what is depicted in the painting, and whether it is possible to deepen the appreciation of the "King's Museum" from there. In addition, actor / dancer Mirai Moriyama read aloud these three stories and further expressed the world view of the story with a performance. The video will also be released.

In addition, although we did not win the prize, we would like to introduce an impressive group of works as honorable mentions. Among the honorable mentions, we have also set up a "Children's Division" for elementary school students and younger.
We hope that the time to face this work will be deeper and richer through the numerous stories drawn from the "Museum of the King".

Yokohama Museum of Art opened to the public on November 3, 1989. It is one of the largest art institutions in Japan. With its iconic architecture, featuring the expansive space of the Grand Gallery, the museum is made up of a total of seven gallery spaces, as well as an Art Information and Media Center that holds over 110,000 art-related books, ateliers hosting a wide range of workshops for children and adults, and many other facilities.
