I don’t know about you but I love going to museums. When I lived in NYC and my man used to visit me (he’s a Swede like me) we probably visited all museums you can find there. I just love all the history and culture, the beautiful art work and all the interesting people who are going to the museums.

I always like the art museums or the natural history museums the most. I could sit for hours in the Guggenheim Hall of Minerals and the Morgan Memorial Hall of Gems in the American Museum of Natural History. Minerals and stones are so fascinating, filled with crazy color combinations and sparkly surfaces. I remember how touched I felt when I went to the Alexander McQueen Savage Beauty exhibition at the Met museum. It was so beautiful, artistic and different. It really felt like you got to know a bit of the genius Alexander McQueen. If you didn’t have a chance to see it and you’re in London this spring or summer, the Victoria and Albert museum will host the exhibition between 14th of March to 2nd of August.

A couple of weekends ago we went to the Museum of Contemporary Art here in Tokyo. I have to be honest and say that contemporary art isn’t my favorite kind of art and a lot of times it doesn’t touch my heart or interest. There were four temporary exhibitions and two floors of the ”Mot Collections”. The Mot museum was really good (if you’re into contemporary art) with great and bright big rooms housing most of the installations. I found some pieces I liked, mostly from the Mot collections. For example this crazy cool car!

Do you like going to the museum? Which one is your favorite one?

みなさん美術館や博物館は好きですか?私は大好きです。ニューヨークに住んでいた頃、夫(彼もスウェーデン人です)がニューヨークに会いに来てくれると、美術館や博物館に足を運んだので、市内にあるものは全て訪れたと思います。私は歴史と文化、美しい芸術作品、そして美術館や博物館を訪れる多様な人々も含めて好きです。

私が特に好きなのは美術館と自然史博物館です。アメリカ自然史博物館のグッゲンハイム鉱物館やモルガン宝石記念館では何時間でも眺めていられます。鉱物や宝石の変わった色の組み合わせや、表面の輝きに魅了されてしまいます。また、メトロポリタン美術館のアレキサンダー・マックイーン回顧展『Savage Beauty』を見たときの感動は忘れられません。とても美しく、芸術的で、独創的でした。鬼才アレキサンダー・マックイーンについて、少し理解できたような気がしました。まだ見ていない方は、この春~夏にかけてロンドンを訪れる機会があれば、ヴィクトリア&アルバート博物館で3月14日~8月2日まで開催されますよ。

数週間前、私は東京都現代美術館(MOT)に行きました。実は現代美術はあまり好きなジャンルではなく、興味・関心が持てないことも多いのですが、ここでは4つの企画展と、2フロアをつかった「MOTコレクション」が展示されていました。MOTは素晴らしい美術館で(特に現代美術が好きな方にはおすすめです)、広くて明るい大広間に主にイラストが飾られていました。「MOTコレクション」の作品を中心に、何点か気に入った作品がありました。このクレイジーでカッコいい車もその一つです!

みなさん、美術館・博物館は好きですか?あなたのお気に入りはどこですか?
