Throughout the 20th century, Japanese identity went through a rapid period of cultural revolution. The artists of the time tried to capture in their works the synthesis of the old and the new Japan, and that is what the MOMAT collection is about.
Tokyo National Museum of Modern Art (MOMAT) focuses on Japanese cultural production since the beginning of the 20th century. This avant-garde museum houses more than 13,000 objects including Japanese and Western paintings, prints, sculptures, photographs, and videos.
MOMAT claims to be the only Japanese museum that chronologically presents the cultural evolution of Japan in the 20th century. Explore themed areas such as A room with a view, where through large windows you can see the city of Tokyo as the quintessential work of art.
In addition to illustrating Japan’s progression into the future, MOMAT also features exhibitions by renowned artists. The MOMAT collection is located on the fourth floor of the museum and exhibits 200 pieces from the permanent collection, which aim is to show the multiple layers of modern society.
