*Because of the state-of-emergency declaration, our museum will be closed at 5:00 PM also on Fridays and Saturdays from January 15, 2021 until further notice.
Sleep is not only an essential part of human life, but it has also fueled artists creativity. Presenting 120 works of various genres, including paintings, prints, sketches, photographs, three-dimensional works, and videos, this exhibition asks the viewer to consider how each work expresses the theme of sleep and what it might be trying to convey.
Works of art produced on the theme of sleep will give us hints about our everyday doubts and worries from perspectives different from those we have while waking.
