Many “Pleased to Meet You” Artworks
Collecting artworks in real time, as they are created, is fundamental to MOT as a contemporary art museum. Featured this time are works produced primarily in the 2010s, selected from among pieces newly acquired during the museum’s closure. Created by some 20 artists, the works will be displayed in a solo exhibition-type format. Visitors will enjoy seeing new works of the past decade by artists of different regions and generations.

And Nostalgic “Nice to See You Again” Artworks and Spaces
Displayed this time, along with newly restored works by MIYAJIMA Tatsuo, will be works already familiar to visitors, including Roy LICHTENSTEIN’s Girl with Hair Ribbon and Arnaldo POMODORO’s Gyroscope of the Sun. Together with new acquisitions, many nostalgic works also await you in the museum’s relaxed, open spaces. Enjoy seeing them at your own pace.

Outdoor Sculptures—Both “Please to meet yous” and “Nice to see you agains”
Outdoor sculptures by artists such as Anthony CARO and Richard DEACON are back in place after thorough restoration. Newly joining them are outdoor sculptures by ONO Yoko, SUZUKI Akio, and TAKADA Akiko & Masako. Encounter both new and already familiar facets of the collection while touring the entire museum building—including the redesigned courtyard.
