Opened in 1995 in Kiba Park, Tokyo; designed by Takahiko Yanagisawa (TAK). Public museum specializes in contemporary art. The collection comprises approximately 4,000 works from 1945 to present. The MOT has an excellent collection of post-war Japanese art that traces major currents chronologically. The special exhibitions include many large-scale solo-exhibitions, domestic and international touring exhibitions, for example, “Yayoi Kusama” (1999), and “Takashi Murakami” (2001). “MOT Annual” holds every January to introduce the works of new rising Japanese artists. The exhibitions on architecture, fashion, and animation (e.g. Studio Ghibli) have also been shown at the MOT.
