Art museum joins Yokohama portfolio

EXTENSIVE renovations at Yokohama Museum of Art will enable the landmark to be available to international planners seeking a unique venue in the Japanese port city.

The museum’s reopening coincides with the Yokohama Triennale, an international exhibition that began in March, featuring contemporary artists whose work will be exhibited across the city until June 9. 

Yokohama Convention Bureau (YCVB) said in a statement: “With the museum firmly back on the map as Yokohama’s leading artistic venue, YCVB plans to showcase the space by holding innovative events there.
