Yokohama Museum of Art 2024-2025 Special Exhibition Schedule Information The Yokohama Museum of Art reopened in March 2024 for the 8th Yokohama Triennale after a three-year period of large-scale renovation work. After the exhibition period ends, the museum will be closed again to allow the approximately 14,000 collection items that were stored in an external warehouse during construction to be returned to the museum. We will open some facilities in November and finally resume all activities in February 2025.

The highlight of this entire opening will be “Welcome Back, Yokohama” (February 8, 2025 – June 2, 2025)*, which will focus squarely on Yokohama. Continue*
“Masahiko Sato Exhibition” (tentative name/June 28, 2025 – November 3, 2025)*, * “Japan-Korea Contemporary Art Exhibition” (tentative name/December 6, 2025 – March 22, 2026)*
The year-long series of exhibitions leading up to the opening will be called “Yokohama Museum of Art Renewal Opening Commemoration”, marking the launch of the new museum.

Rooted in the land of Yokohama. To boldly engage in expressions that go beyond the framework of “art.” Keeping in mind its history as an international trading port, we should look to the world. All of them have a rich lineup with themes unique to the Yokohama Museum of Art. Please look forward to it.

People who lived here before the port was opened. Citizens numbering 170 nationalities. An unexpected product from Yokohama. This exhibition sheds light on this diverse face of Yokohama. We utilize our museum’s collection and also commission new works from artists. The title means “The Yokohama Museum of Art is back” after being closed for construction for about three years, and “Welcome everyone involved in Yokohama, regardless of the time period they lived in or the region they were born in, by saying “Welcome home.” It contains the wish “I want to do it.”

*Japan-Korea Contemporary Art Exhibition (tentative name)*

Saturday, December 6, 2025 – Sunday, March 22, 2026
Japan and South Korea have a long history of being geographically and culturally close partners. Among these, what kind of relationship has art had between 1945 and today? If we focus on the points of contact and disconnection, commonalities and differences between the two countries, unexpected aspects of each other and of ourselves may emerge.
To coincide with the 60th anniversary of the normalization of diplomatic relations between Japan and South Korea in 1965, we will unravel the history of the relationship between Japan and South Korea’s contemporary art through a joint project with the National Museum of Contemporary Art, Korea.
