This event has ended.
The Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo holds some 5,400 pieces in its collection, which spans the modern and contemporary periods with a focus on art of the postwar years. MOT regularly features the works in “MOT Collection” exhibitions, choosing a different theme each term to show the diverse appeal of contemporary art while enabling the viewing of the same artworks from different perspectives.
Having newly acquired some 400 works during its three-year closure, the museum will focus on these new acquisitions in its “MOT Collection” exhibitions this fiscal year, which marks the museum’s Grand Reopening. In Term One, the exhibition will spotlight works produced in the 2010s and also unveil earlier collected works that have undergone restoration. In MOT’s newly renovated galleries, people familiar with MOT’s collection and those viewing it for the first time will be able to enjoy fresh encounters with each of the works.
