Temporary Exhibitions

Modern French Posters: Museum and Archives, Kyoto Institute of Technology Design Collection


Aug. 14 - Oct. 3, 2021

Detail

  From the end of the 19th to the beginning of the 20th century, the Industrial Revolution drastically changed people's lives in France. In an era called the "Belle Epoque," popular culture flourished at bars, cabarets, operas and theaters and the people enjoyed modern life to the fullest. At that time poster design made one of the most significant developments. Designers used their skills to produce beautiful posters to promote products, entertainment and travel.
  This exhibition presents 150 of the most important French posters of the Belle Epoque, from the poster collection of the Museum and Archives, Kyoto Institute of Technology, including works by Jules Chéret, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec and Alphonse Mucha. Please enjoy the world of poster design which once colored the modern city of Paris.
