In 2011, the museum commissioned artist Guillaume Bottazzi to create a 900m² work of art, the largest painting in Japan to date.
This event, ‘Hope 2011’, took place after the earthquake and tsunami of March 2011.

This monumental 900m² painting by Guillaume Bottazzi was created on all sides of the museum. It was created in partnership with the French Embassy in Japan. This project has been seen by a billion people.

At the same time, the museum organised a solo exhibition of works by Guillaume Bottazzi: oil paintings on canvas, papers, drawings and multimedia montages representing the different aspects of the artist’s work.
The museum acquired a painting for its collection.
