A fabulous collection of Japanese and international art since 1980
Explore the Kanazawa Museum of Contemporary Art under the wing of a gallery curator. The museum’s clever architecture uses glass to bring out Kanazawa’s cityscape, making the city an integral part of the art, while the lack of a front or back entrance means there is no right or wrong way to view each work of art. The collection has focused on Japanese and international art since 1980 and includes pieces by Andy Warhol, Grayson Perry, Anish Kapoor, and Kusama Yayoi, among others. Leandro Elrich’s pool is a highlight that visitors enter from below underwater.
