Fukuoka Asian Art Museum is the only museum in the world that systematically collects and exhibits Asian modern and contemporary art. The works in the collection of the museum are not an imitation of Western art or repetitions of traditional works. Instead, they seek to overcome the existing framework of art, being made by artists living in contemporary Asia. In addition to collection and exhibition programs, the museum runs “residence program” throughout the year. Through the program, the museum seeks to function as a place for people to become familiar with Asian arts and culture through the artistic creations and researches of the invitees of the Residence Program. It is an interactive museum - the place of meeting, understanding each other and creating together.
Fukuoka Asian Art Museum is locating in the historic center of Fukuoka, Japan. The area flourished as a port town since the Middle Age and is known for its unique merchant culture.
