'The Sainsbury Institute
was founded in 1999 through the generosity of Sir Robert and Lady Sainsbury to promote knowledge and understanding of Japanese arts and cultures. As it approaches its tenth anniversary the Institute has formulated a renewed mission statement, which not only reflects the benefactors' intentions and is grounded in their original vision, but aims to expand its intellectual horizons.
'The mission of the Sainsbury Institute is to be an active source of and conduit for innovative research: positioning, revealing and interpreting the arts and cultures of the Japanese archipelago from the present to the past in regional, European and global contexts.'
