This event has ended.

In this ongoing series of exhibitions, the museum presents trends in modern and contemporary Japanese art from the 20th century to the present, including references to international connections.
The “Highlights” section (Room 1, 4th floor) is filled with a selection of masterpieces from the museum collection. The displays in Rooms 2 to 12 are arranged in more or less chronological order. Since the items in each room are based on a particular theme, such as “The Sun, Me, and Women” and “The Great Kanto Earthquake,” you can enjoy comparing and contrasting them. Considering the historical background of the works should also make for an enjoyable viewing experience. Other rooms contain themes related to the Kumagai Morikazu exhibition (Dec. 1 - Mar. 21) and the Yokoyama Taikan exhibition (Apr. 13 - May 27), both held on the first floor.
In Room 9 (3rd floor), there is an exhibit on Robert Frank, one of America’s preeminent photographers, featuring a group of recently acquired works, and in Gallery 4 (2nd floor), an exhibit titled “Refugees.” In addition, “Spring Festival in MOMAT” will be held in the spring of 2018 to coincide with cherry-blossom season. Among the works awaiting you there will be Kawai Gyokudo’s Parting Spring (on view from Mar. 20 to May 27).
