MOT Collection Part 3: Present Day and in Times Past ― Multiple Perspectives
This event has ended.
The Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo houses approximately 5,400 artworks in its extensive collection, which spans the modern and contemporary periods with a focus on art of the postwar years. In an aim to communicate the diverse appeal of contemporary art, each installment of the “MOT Collection” exhibition serves to introduce artworks in the collection from various themes and angles in order to offer visitors with an opportunity to engage with even the same works from various perspectives. The third installment introduces approximately 120 works spanning the 1930s until recent years, centering on donated pieces from amongst the 400 or so artworks collected during the museum’s closure for renovations. The exhibition contemplates the meaning behind the collection through multiple perspectives such as past and present, museum and collector.
