teamLab Borderless

If you’re in Japan and on any social media, it’s hard not to know something about teamLab. The imminently Instagrammable digital art museum is designed for selfies to share. There are rooms filled with projections of flowers, strings of beautifully flashing lights, small lanterns of changing colors, and a room that’s great for moving around, especially with kids, called the Athletics Forest.

information or inspiration?

Ready to see beautiful Japanese artwork with a fresh approach? This exhibition lets the viewer experience art through two different perspectives. One calls on the right brain, using your intuition to experience the artwork, the “inspiration” perspective. The other approach provides details for the left brain, allowing the “information”, and a full, unobstructed view of the artwork, to enhance the experience. This exhibition is made up of only 22 works of Japanese ceramics, glassware, incense burners and more, but visitors go through twice, choosing to begin with either the information (white) side or inspiration (black) side.

Let's Talk Art!

The National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo (MOMAT) is trying something new. Let’s Talk Art! is a weekly art program, targeted to foreign visitors. The museum is promoting a cross-cultural experience through the exploration of masterpieces of modern Japanese art. The one-hour tour focuses on three pieces of art, chosen by the museum guide. Rather than having an expert tell the participants about the art, the guide encourages discussion about the artwork through questions. This is an opportunity to learn about Japan, its history and its culture through selected artworks.
