You'll know the Museum of Contemporary Art immediately by its distinctive, slightly foreboding gray geometric entrance way. The enormous building is a work of art in its own right and is one of the city's most distinctive landmarks. It was created by artist Yanagisawa Takahiko and features stone, steel and wood materials in a design that incorporates modernist, neo-classical and post-modern industrial styles.
Inside you'll find over 3500 pieces of twentieth and twenty-first century art. The work is by both famous international artists like Andy Warhol and David Hockney as well as Japanese artists like Yokō Tadanori. The temporary exhibitions are often considered the real attraction and feature touring exhibitions from around the world.
