Tokyo: viewpoints on art and the universe

Ending January 9, a collection of more than 200 works and objects from around the world invite you to reflect upon the origin of the universe at the Mori Art Museum in Tokyo.

For centuries, the universe has fascinated mankind and has been the subject of numerous scientific studies. Various hypotheses suggest what there might be beyond our world. But the question remains: how have men represented the cosmos through the ages? The exhibition ‘The Universe and Art' addresses this conundrum through the art on display. A selection of objects also testifies to the research and progress that has been made. Meteorites, fossils, astronomical equipment—all show man's progress in this quest for an understanding of the universe. Embark on an extraordinary journey through time and space in the heart of Tokyo!
