The National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo launches online programme “Let’s Talk Art! Online”  in English, facilitating conversations on art appreciation and deepening understanding of Japanese culture. 

Online experiential programme “Let’s Talk Art! Online” launched at Japan’s National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo (MOMAT) on February 2, 2022. Originally offered in person, “Let’s Talk Art!” aims to spark conversations, deepen understanding of the museum’s collections, and encourage appreciation of Japanese culture. Due to increased travel restrictions, MOMAT is now offering their guided programme in English online, opening up access to anyone across the globe.

“Let’s Talk Art!” differentiates itself from traditional guided tours at museums, and encourages participants to interact with each other. For the online programme, a facilitator will be present to guide a conversation about three carefully selected works from the museum’s extensive collection.

MOMAT welcomes not just art lovers to this cross-cultural exchange, but anyone who is seeking to deepen their understanding of Japanese art and culture.
