MOMAK was established in 1963 to link traditional arts and crafts to 20th century ideas and vision, and Japanese modern art movements to those of the West. The current building was designed by Fumihiko Maki, and today is host to many high-calibre exhibitions such as the recent Mary Cassatt and James McNeill Whistler retrospectives.
