"Digital art is a term and a practice that has been prevalent in the museums and contemporary art sectors since the 1960s."
In today’s increasingly global world, the intercommunication of people and information gives us the opportunity to learn deeply from the cultures and histories of other places, and to celebrate new, more diverse ways of living. In this environment, there is a growing role for art as a rich source of new value creation, and for its adjoining creative activities.
As a contemporary art museum with a global outlook, the Mori Art Museum is committed to presenting cutting-edge visual arts, architecture, design and other modes of creative practice from around the world, from a unique viewpoint informed by its ongoing dedication to the “contemporary” and “international.” The Museum plays an especially vital role as a center for contemporary art from Japan and the wider Asia-Pacific, by focusing on the art of the region, decoding individual cultural backgrounds and positioning emerging trends within a broader global context.
Last but not least, the Mori Art Museum is committed to the principle of “Art + Life,” encouraging to realize an enriched, vibrant and well-rounded society where art relates to all aspects of life.
