Watari-um museum of Contemporary Art

The Watari-um Museum of Contemporary Art in Shibuya, Tokyo stands together with the Mori Arts Center and the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa as one of the major institutions in Japan and in Asia in the field of contemporary visual arts. It was designed by the architect Mario Botta in 1990.

From the very beginning the Watari-Um Museum has aimed its gaze at the top of the mountain. This could already be seen in the decision to invite Mario Botta to design the building. It could be seen by the invitation of world specialists in exhibitionmaking and the inclusion of artists that are international references for the development of contemporary art. Never was there a confusion between having local roots and being regionalistic.
