From December 5, 2020 to March 14, 2021, Immigration Museum Tokyo opened an online art museum to present perspectives on multicultural society in contemporary Japan. Our museum's approach consists of three exhibition sections (Guest Artists, Open Call Exhibitions, and Activity Exhibitions), an introduction to the activities of a group of citizen members called Neighbors, a blog by Director Andy, and a library of information related to this project.
