About the Museum
The Mori Art Museum opened in 2003 at the top of the central Mori Tower, a 54-storey skyscraper in the Roppongi entertainment district, visible throughout Tokyo. Rather than exhibiting a permanent collection, the museum showcases temporary exhibitions. While predominantly focusing on Japanese and Asian art, the museum’s programme is also dedicated to exploring the current state of contemporary art in rapidly developing parts of the globe such as China, Africa, India and the Middle East. The Mori Art Museum has also held a number of ambitious solo shows with varied international artists including Yayoi Kusama, Bill Viola and N. S. Harsha. Exploring Asian art in a global context, the museum presents a wide range of exhibitions and learning programmes that incorporate cutting-edge visual arts, architecture, and design.
