This event has ended.

Almost everyone has wondered about another planet while staring at stars in the sky, or gazed at cloud formations and seen the shapes of particular things. In ancient times, human beings always found inspiration in the ethereal world. Of course, many artists have expressed such fascination with the surreal world, and visualized intangible matters such as the expansive sky or radiant stars. This exhibition presents a total 40 paintings, photographs, and sculptures made since the beginning of the 20th century, which deal with the sky, stars, and clouds.
