This event has ended.
In the second decade of the twenty-first century both outer space, into which research and development progresses, and artists’ expressions of inner space are rapidly expanding/converging to constitute a parallel world. Coinciding with the 2014 space boom, this exhibition examines how outer space has been drawn infinitely closer to our daily lives, along with the inner space created by artists as a multiverse, surpassing individual cosmologies. Japan joined the exploration space after the war, and the since this time artists have also come to interpret our steps into the universe through their own particular expressions. This exhibition will present art installations; items connected with space exploration, such as parts of satellites and rockets (fairings); documents from the world of entertainment, such as literature, manga and anime; interactive exhibits; discussions and other events to explore the new possibilities that ‘reflect the expanding/converging world’. It will offer the opportunity to experience and consider ‘space’, not only as some different world or Utopia, but also as something that is ‘ordinary’ in a true sense.
