Permanent installations at Hara Museum ARC take full advantage of its expansive grounds and lush greenery. These include works by Andy Warhol, Olafur Eliasson, Jean-Michel Othoniel and others. Together with the museum buildings, whose design by Arata Isozaki itself may be considered works of art, these various installations form a landscape dotted with artworks. Displayed within the museum on an indefinite basis are also large-scale installations by Yayoi Kusama and Tabaimo.
