Our Exhibitions


Tokyo Metropolitan Art museum, founded in 1926, has been home to exhibitions of a wide variety of Japanese art organizations for over seventy years. The museum holds two kinds of exhibitions: one consists of the works of contemporary artists and is exposed in Rental Galleries. The other part is Museum Gallery, which hosts art exhibitions from abroad organized in cooperation with newspaper and TV companies. After the renovation of its building in 1975, special exhibitions planned by the curators were held in addition to those exhibitions of contemporary Japanese artists groups in the rental galleries. The museum provides art lectures and workshops, and its art library is open for public.
