Mori Art Museum, located on the 53rd floor of Roppongi Hills Mori Tower, is a contemporary art museum with a global outlook, committed to presenting cutting-edge visual arts, architecture, design, and other modes of creative output from around the world through a unique point of view. Parallel to large-scale, curated exhibitions, the museum also organizes a series of programs on a smaller scale. These include “MAM Collection,” which introduces works in the museum's collection; “MAM Screen,” which showcases video works; “MAM Research,” which focuses on exhibiting materials rather than artworks; and “MAM Projects,” which conducts experimental projects with artists from all over the world.

With the motto “Art + Life” and in an effort to make contemporary art more accessible, the Mori Art Museum also supervises works of public art at Roppongi Hills and Toranomon Hills and organizes art events in collaboration with the local community. It is open until late every evening, except Tuesdays, to enable museumgoers to enjoy art after work or after dinner.

Listen to the Sound of the Earth Turning
Our Wellbeing since the Pandemic
June 29–November 6
Since 2020, an invisible virus has disrupted our days and wrought havoc on our ways of life and states of mind. Under these circumstances, much artistic expression, including contemporary art, resonates more acutely than ever. “Listen to the Sound of the Earth Turning” explores ways to live life as the pandemic persists as well as the nature of “wellbeing,” understood as the holistic health of both body and mind, from multiple perspectives found in contemporary art. Works on subjects with a connection to life and existence—nature and humans, the individual and society, family, the repetitious nature of daily living, the spiritual world, life and death—will encourage visitors to consider what it means to “live well.”
