Astronomy manuscripts penned by Leonardo da Vinci and the latest, immersive installation by teamLab that lets you experience the cosmos first hand – this is the Universe and Art exhibition at Mori Art Museum.
The exhibition will offer a diverse selection of items from across the globe and down the centuries, in multiple genres, from meteorites and fossils to historic astronomical material by Da Vinci and Galileo; mandalas; Taketori Monogatari (The Tale of the Bamboo Cutter) which we may call Japan's oldest sci-fi novel; installations by contemporary artists, and the latest from the frontline of space development.
The exhibition comprises four sections: “How Have Humans through the Ages Viewed the Universe?” “The Universe as Space-Time” “A New View of Life - Do Aliens Exist?” and “Space Travel and the Future of Humanity,” the exhibition will offer novel, future-oriented views of the cosmos and mankind.
