Art Brut Acquisition Policy

Formation of a collection of Art Brut, with a focus on Japan and Shiga Prefecture in particular

Approach to Acquisitions

  • While remaining rooted in Shiga, where numerous outstanding art works have emerged from the social welfare sector, in the future we will also consider acquiring other key Art Brut-related works, primarily from Japan as well as some from overseas. We will select works based on the criteria below so as to offer an overview of the characteristics and appeal of Art Brut.
  • Works will be acquired in quantity and on an ongoing basis with the goal of exhibiting them as part of the museum’s collection exhibition.

Collection Policy

  • Works and materials relating to Art Brut in Shiga (including those emerging from creative activities at the welfare facilities for persons with disabilities)
  • Works and related materials that foster understanding of the characteristics of Japanese Art Brut
  • Works by Japanese and overseas contemporary artists related to Art Brut
