MOT Collection Part 2:

Pleased to meet you.

New Acquisitions in recent years

Outline

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. In its first period, the “MOT Collection: Pleased to meet you. New Acquisitions in recent years” had presented works produced primarily in the 2010s, selected from among the 400 pieces acquired during the museum’s closure. On this occasion, the second period of the exhibition will alter a section of its contents to newly showcase the works of three additional artists.
