MMAT has been forming a unique series of collections since its opening, shedding light on the works by artists closely related to Meguro. The spotlight is mainly on the works by Japanese artists who studied or who played an active role in the international art scene. Since MMAT is holding partly simultaneously “Daily Joy 2021 – by Artists with Disabilities in Meguro”, we will display in this Exhibition “MMAT Collection” the selected works under the theme of “Daily Joy.”
