Chichu Art Museum, Naoshima – Tadao Ando

Chichu Art Museum, established in 2004, is itself a quintessential site-specific work of art. The museum invites us to rethink our relationship with nature, a central theme in the ideological landscape of Naoshima. Located on the south side of Naoshima, the Tadao Ando-designed facility has a permanent collection of works, many commissioned for the museum over the past two decades, and includes such artists as Claude Monet, Walter de Maria, and James Turrell.
