TOKYO -- As countries throughout the Asia-Pacific make a bigger push for contemporary art, Japanese artists and art museums today should leverage more of the region’s emerging power to sustain their own growth.

So says Mami Kataoka, director of Tokyo's Mori Art Museum, one of Japan’s leading contemporary art museums. Currently featuring an exhibition of renowned Japanese contemporary artists, Kataoka revealed how the coronavirus has forced her to use digital technology to map a new business model for the museum, as well as rethink how to maximize the physical experience that art museums can deliver in the future.
